EBRAINS - New enabling infrastructure for neuroscience

External Event - 25th Nov 2019

The Human Brain Project’s unique goal is to interconnect computer science, medicine and neuroscience to accelerate the understanding of the human brain and its diseases, and to harness that knowledge to the benefit of society. To achieve this, the Project has built EBRAINS - the world’s first integrated ICT infrastructure for brain research and development, offering growing capabilities in neuroinformatics, brain simulation, medical informatics, neuromorphic computing and neurorobotics, underpinned by high-performance analytics and computing.

This event is open to the entire scientific community, aiming to introduce EBRAINS with an overview of interdisciplinary efforts for the advance of digital neuroscience, presented by HBP leadership and experts.

Attendance is free of charge, but registration is mandatory. Registrations are limited as the on-site capacity of the event is 100 participants, however, the event will be accessible via web streaming as well.
