New projects to use EBRAINS platform to increase the scope of its applications

From August 2020 to October 2020, the HBP launched 4 Calls for Expression of Interest inviting researchers to submit projects to add new expertise to the HBP community and to its research infrastructure EBRAINS.

The new projects will not only make use of EBRAINS' collection of cutting-edge brain data sets, simulation and modelling tools and high-performance computing resources, but also contribute to the further development of the EBRAINS platform and increase the scope of its applications in terms of innovation, neuroscience and clinical research.

From a total of 33 admissible and eligible proposals, these seven successful projects were selected:

  • GROW - General-purpose Robot for Object retrieval in Warehouses
    Coordinator: Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), Italy
    Partners: Inglobe Technologies, Italy; AI2Life, Italy
  • PROMEN-AID - Proactive Memory iN AI for Development
