New projects will both leverage and contribute to the digital infrastructure EBRAINS

Business Announcement

Human Brain Project

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
    Coordinator: Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), Robotics Brain and Cognitive Sciences Unit, Italy
    Partners: ROBOTNIK AUTOMATION SLL - ROB, Spain Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, LifeSTech (UPM), Spain

  • SPIKEFERENCE - Spike-driven deep active inference for sequential goal behaviours
    Coordinator: Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, Department of Artifical Intelligence, Radboud University, the Netherlands

  • NEURO-CONNECT - Knowledge management solution for multimodal brain atlas and connectome integration
    Coordinator: Biomax Informatics AG, Germany

  • CESPAR - Closed-loop exoskeleton simulation for personalized assistive rehabilitation within HBP NRP
    Coordinator: Alpine Intuition, Switzerland
    Partners: Autonomyo, Switzerland

  • Neuro-robin - Closed loop upper limb neurorobot simulator
    Coordinator: Bitbrain, Spain

  • LB2020 - LIVING BRAIN Next generation dedicated brain PET
    Coordinator: GEM Imaging SA - ONCOVISION, Spain

    The HBP is very happy to welcome a total of 8 new industrial partners and 4 new academic units collaborating in these projects, and looks forward to great synergies, fruitful exchanges and innovative advancements.
