Calls for Proposals

Calls for Expressions of Interest for the Possibility to join the Human Brain Project

Organisation offering: Horizon 2020

Details:

Please find below four calls for Expressions of Interest for the possibility to join the Human Brain Project as potential new Partners to submit proposals that will directly contribute to the development of the HBP Platforms (that will ultimately become the HBP-Joint Platform) and increase the scope of their application, in terms of neuroscience and clinical research.

The deadline for submission for all calls is 30 September 2017. The selected Partners will become full Partners in the HBP Consortium. The projects will run from April 2018 to March 2020 (SGA2 phase).

These calls have a substantial amount of funding, and have the aim of fostering new collaborations across the full width of the HBP Subprojects and the scientific community:

Co-designing the HBP digital infrastructure for advancing the understanding of multilevel brain organization (EUR 1,839,424.00; split between two selected proposals).
Co-designing the HBP digital infrastructure for advancing the understanding of multilevel brain organization aims to help neuroscientist and clinical researchers integrate data and knowledge about the brain across all levels of its spatial and temporal organization, to provide an integrated framework to federate and analyze massive volumes of brain data. To accomplish so, it is important that the proposals for this call bridge or integrate the activities of at least 3 subprojects of HBP.
Further details on the Call and submission process can be found here: http://opencalls.humanbrainproject.eu/forms/16/overview .
