5th Annual Human Brain Project Summit

External Event - 18th to 20th Oct 2017

The Human Brain Project (HBP) is an EU-funded Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Flagship Initiative to create and operate an ICT based research infrastructure, to help advance neuroscience, medicine and computing. The 10-year project began in 2013 and involves leading scientists at more than 100 universities and research centres across Europe.

The HBP Summit, which takes place each year in a different European City, is the principal internal meeting of the Project. It typically brings together some 400 researchers from the 100+ participating institutions, representing each of the HBP’s 12 component Subprojects, to share results, explore new possibilities, and plan future activities. The Summit typically lasts two days and comprises a mixture of plenary and breakout sessions.The event consists of a 3-day interactive scientific programme, comprising plenary sessions, external keynote presentations, hackathons, demos, scientific highlight sessions and cross-disciplinary workshops.
