Human Brain Project internship

Understanding the human brain

Collaborate, collaborate, collaborate. This is our opportunity.

Prof. Karlheinz Meier, University of Heidelberg,
Co-leader of the Neuromorphic Computing Subproject

A key goal of the Human Brain Project is to construct realistic simulations of the human brain – this will require molecular and cellular information and from that we will be able to model and understand biological and medical processes. In addition, we will be able to use that information to design and implement new kinds of computers and robotics.

Prof. Seth Grant, University of Edinburgh,
Co-leader of the Strategic Mouse Brain data subproject

The Human Brain is the most complex system that we know of. We would like to develop some kind of ‘google' brain where we can zoom in and out, see it from different perspectives and understand how brain structure and function is related. The ultimate aim of the Human Brain Project is to understand the human brain. This is only possible when we understand the structural organization of the human brain.

The Human Brain Project will become a major driver of ICT in Europe.
