Co-designing the HBP digital infrastructure for advancing the understanding of multilevel brain organisation

End date 2017-09-30 17:00:00 (GMT+1)

The Human Brain Project

The Human Brain Project (HBP, is an ambitious 10-year research initiative, and part of the EU flagship program[1]. The HBP is developing an innovative ICT[2] infrastructure (the HBP Joint Platform), that will help neuroscientists and clinical researchers integrate data and knowledge about the brain across all levels of its spatial and temporal organisation. Using detailed digital representations, reconstructions, and simulations it aims to give tools to thousands of researchers to advance and accelerate our understanding of the functioning of the human brain and its diseases.

Through this Call for Expressions of Interest (CEoI), the HBP is looking for new Partners with a strong track record in the development of digital infrastructure in large neuroscience projects or equivalent to join the project's next phase, which will be funded under Horizon 2020 (H2020[3]).


Scope of the call for Co-designing the HBP digital infrastructure for advancing the understanding of multilevel brain organisation

Under this CEoI, potential new Partners are expected to group up with other prospective Partners of their choice, and together submit a proposal for a challenging project addressing high-level Use Cases to further advance the development of the HBP’s digital research infrastructure.

Success in this Call should not be considered as a commitment by the HBP or the EC to continue funding the Partners after the end of the SGA2 period. The continuation of this activity will be subject to the same review as all other HBP activities.
