Brain projects

Brain project!
The Human Brain Project (HBP) is a European Commission Future and Emerging Technologies Flagship. The HBP aims to put in place a cutting-edge, ICT-based scientific Research Infrastructure for brain research, cognitive neuroscience and brain-inspired computing. The Project promotes collaboration across the globe, and is committed to driving forward European industry.

The HBP Flagship was launched by the European Commission's Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) scheme in October 2013, and is scheduled to run for ten years. With Flagships, the Commission proposes a new partnering model for visionary, long-term European cooperative research in the European Research Area, demonstrating the potential for common research efforts. The HBP has the following main objectives:

  • Create and operate a European scientific Research Infrastructure for brain research, cognitive neuroscience, and other brain-inspired sciences
  • Gather, organise and disseminate data describing the brain and its diseases
  • Simulate the brain
  • Build multi-scale scaffold theory and models for the brain
  • Develop brain-inspired computing, data analytics and robotics
  • Ensure that the HBP's work is undertaken responsibly and that it benefits society.

The timeline of the Project is split into multiple phases, each of which will be covered by a separate funding agreement. The current phase is Specific Grant Agreement One (SGA1), which spans the two-year period from April 2016–April 2018. The HBP is funded via several sources. Total funding is planned to be in the region of EUR 1 billion; around one half of which will be provided by the European Union, and the other by Member States and private funding sources. The European Union contributed EUR 54 million to the Project in the Ramp-Up Phase (October 2013 to March 2016), EUR 89 million for the current phase (SGA1), and should provide in the region of EUR 88 million for the next phase (SGA2). The FET Flagships Staff Working Document provides further information on how Flagships are funded.

How the Flagship works

The Flagship model is made up of the Core Project (CP) and Partnering Projects (PPs). The CP is funded by the European Union, and is the driving force behind the Flagship. It ensures the Flagship's scientific leadership and cohesion, and supports the building of the Research Infrastructure. The PPs are an integral part of the Flagship. They are financed by various national funding agencies, and complement the research performed in the CP. They also contribute to building the Research Infrastructure, and provide the first external users to test the HBP Platforms with funded projects. In the Flagship model, the research community drives the process of defining and selecting the grand challenge of the Flagship, and developing the related research roadmap.
