Human brain project (EU) : case study report - Study
The Human Brain Project HBP is a 10-year European Flagship project, aiming at a comprehensive understanding of the human brain. The HBP aims to combine all existing knowledge and data about the human brain for building a realistic computer model of the brain by 2023. Such model will help researchers understand how the human brain works and the diseases affecting it. The HBP represents a new partnering model for long-term European cooperative research in the European Research Area, demonstrating the potential for common research efforts. HBP strives to accelerate the fields of neuroscience,... computing and brain-related medicine. This acceleration will be achieved by a strategic alignment of scientific research programmes in fundamental neuroscience, advanced simulation and multi-scale modelling with the construction of an enabling research infrastructure.
