Human Brain Project Summit

The HBP Summit 2014 group

Understanding the human brain is one of the greatest challenges facing 21st century science. If we can rise to the challenge, we can gain profound insights into what makes us human, develop new treatments for brain disease and build revolutionary new computing technologies. Today, for the first time, modern ICT has brought these goals within sight.

Understanding the human brain is one of the greatest challenges facing 21st century science. If we can rise to it, we can gain profound insights into what makes us human, build revolutionary computing technologies and develop new treatments for brain disorders. Today, for the first time, modern ICT has brought these goals within reach.

The HBP will develop six ICT platforms, dedicated respectively to Neuroinformatics, Brain Simulation, High Performance Computing, Medical Informatics, Neuromorphic Computing and Neurorobotics.

The Human Brain Project is accelerating progress toward a multi-level understanding of the human brain, better diagnosis and treatment of brain diseases, and brain-inspired Information and Communications Technologies (ICT). The potential impacts of these advancements on science, medicine, industry and society are profound.

An important goal of the HBP's Ethics and Society Programme will be to promote a constructive dialogue with public and private stakeholders and with the general public, maintaining an intense engagement with points of view external to the HBP, identifying emerging controversies, and formulating recommendations for HBP research and research priorities. This effort will be deliberately independent of the project's dissemination activities.

The HBP roadmap defines the research that the HBP Flagship Initiative will perform over the duration of the Project, until 2023. This roadmap covers not just science, but also technology development, clinical applications, data generation, development of methodology, algorithms and tools, and Responsible Research Innovation.

The HBP will develop six ICT platforms, dedicated respectively to Neuroinformatics, Brain Simulation, High Performance Computing, Medical Informatics, Neuromorphic Computing and Neurorobotics. In all cases, the platforms will build on existing capabilities, some but not all developed by the HBP partners. The HBP platforms will be designed for use by scientists from outside the HBP Consortium who may have limited technological expertise.

The HBP is organized in thirteen subprojects.

The HBP regularly publishes its research in scientific journals. Click here to see a list of HBP publications.

All HBP Subprojects complete Deliverables that are formally agreed with the European Commission. These range from documents, such as reports, to data sets and prototypes. Deliverables are one of the ways in which the HBP is able to formally track and assess its progress.
