The 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 currently funded (54 M€) by FP7 as part of the FET Flagship Programme.
The HBP has reserved a portion of its ramp-up phase funding for specific research 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 Competitive Call covers the following topics of the HBP work plan:
1. Human and mouse neural channelomics and receptonics.
2. Genotype to phenotype mapping of the mouse brain.
3. Identifying, gathering and organizing multimodal human and nonhuman neuroscience data.
4. Cognitive architectures.
5. Novel methods for rule-based clustering of medical data.
6. Neural configurations for neuromorphic computing systems.
7. Virtual robotic environments, agents, sensory & motor systems.
8. Theory of multi-scale circuits.
