The Human Brain Project

The European Commission has selected the Human Brain Project as one of its two Flagship projects. Over the course of 10 years the HBP will create an integrated system of six ICT platforms, one dedicated to Neurorobotics. The Neurorobotics Subproject of the HBP is coordinated by a research group led by Prof. Alois Knoll.

The Human Brain Project is part of the FET Flagship Programme, which is a new initiative launched by the European Commission as part of its Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) initiative. The goal is to encourage visionary, “mission-oriented” research with the potential to deliver breakthroughs in information technology with major benefits for European society and industry. The Commission envisages the Flagship program as a highly ambitious initiative involving close collaboration with National and Regional funding agencies, industry and partners from outside the European Union.
