The HBP Flagship was launched by the European Commission’s Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) scheme in October 2013, and is scheduled to run for ten years. The Flagships, represent a new partnering model for visionary, long-term European cooperative research in the European Research Area, demonstrating the potential for common research efforts. The HBP has the following main objectives:

  • Create and operate a European scientific Research Infrastructure for brain research, cognitive neuroscience, and other brain-inspired sciences
  • Gather, organise and disseminate data describing the brain and its diseases
  • Simulate the brain
  • Build multi-scale scaffold theory and models for the brain
  • Develop brain-inspired computing, data analytics and robotics
  • Ensure that the HBP’s work is undertaken responsibly and that it benefits society.

More information on the HBP’s Flagship Objectives is available in the Framework Partnership Agreement.
