The Human Brain Project (HBP) will organize a Competitive Call for additional beneficiaries

hbp_logo_and_nameThe 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) is funded (54M€) by the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities (2007-2013), as part of the FET Flagship 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 proposals should encompass research activities exclusively.
