Human Brain Project, Unifying our Understanding of the Human Brain

With over 80 institutions, more than 20 countries, 3 research areas and 13 subprojects – the Human Brain Project, which began on October 1, 2013, is one of the European Union’s two FET Flagship Programmes – one billion euro, ten-year projects addressing fundamental scientific challenges with a potentially very large social and economic impact. In the first two and a half years, the project will design, build and begin to operate a completely new ICT infrastructure for neuroscience, and for brain-related research in computing and medicine. Six tightly integrated ICT platforms will offer state of the art services in Neuroinformatics, Brain Simulation, High Performance Computing, Medical Informatics, Neuromorphic Computing and Neurorobotics.

Starting in March 2016, the project will open its platforms to the world scientific community, catalyzing a global collaborative effort to reach a unified understanding of the human brain and its diseases and, ultimately, to emulate its computational capabilities
