Competitive Call for additional beneficiaries

Call deadline: 6 November 2013 

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) has received €54M of funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme. HBP has reserved a portion of its ramp-up phase funding for specific 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 project will only consider proposals for research. Other kinds of activity will not be funded. 

Call topics 
1 - Human and mouse neural channelomics and receptomics 
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 multiscale circuits 

The following are eligible to participate in the HBP Competitive Call: any legal entity established in an EU Member State or an associated country or created under EU law; any international European interest organisation; any legal entity established in an FP7 international cooperation partner countries (ICPC).
