Participate in the Project - Call for proposals of Human Brain Project (HBP) is open for application.

Author: Research, Project Development and Technology Transfer Directorate

The Human Brain Project Competitive Call is designed to complement the collective skills of the Consortium with additional expertise and resources needed to reach its scientific objectives. Once selected, applicants will become full partners of the project.

The Human Brain Project (HBP) is a ten-year, large-scale European research initiative whose goal is to understand the human brain and its diseases and ultimately to emulate its computational capabilities. The ramp-up phase of the project (October 2013 to March 2016) has received €54M of funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme.

HBP has reserved a portion of its ramp-up phase funding for specific tasks to be carried out by new beneficiaries who will join the consortium in 2014. These new beneficiaries will be selected from proposals submitted in response to this Competitive Call. The project will only consider proposals for research. Other kinds of activity will not be funded.
