The final Human Brain Project Summit 2023 will take place in Marseille, France, on March 28-31, 2023. Media representatives are invited to join.

As the ten-year European Flagship Human Brain Project (HBP) approaches its conclusion in September 2023, the final HBP Summit will highlight the scientific achievements of the project at the interface of neuroscience and technology and the legacy that it will leave for the brain research community.

Scientists will present cutting-edge research

Latest European advances in the fields of neuroscience and applications in medicine and brain-derived technologies will be presented. Researchers from within the HBP will show its abundant scientific achievements and the highly integrative, technology- and data-driven brain research that has been established. The summit will include talks, panel discussions, poster sessions and ample opportunity for networking.

Meet leading researchers at the HBP press talk

In addition to the scientific programme, the summit will include a press talk with a panel of leading HBP researchers. The panellists will discuss major scientific and technological advances and answer journalists’ questions. The press talk will be followed by a press reception.


The full programme of the HBP Summit can be viewed here:

Local Host Aix-Marseille University

The Summit is coordinated and organised locally by HBP Partner Aix-Marseille University.

The Human Brain Project (HBP) is the largest brain science project in Europe and stands among the biggest research projects ever funded by the European Union. It is one of the three FET Flagship Projects of the EU. At the interface of neuroscience and information technology, the HBP investigates the brain and its diseases with the help of highly advanced methods from computing, neuroinformatics and artificial intelligence, and in turn drives innovation in fields like brain-inspired computing and neurorobotics. As a lasting contribution to the global science community, the HBP develops EBRAINS, an open European research infrastructure that allows scientists and technology experts to seamlessly collaborate, accelerating advancements in the fields of neuroscience, computing and brain-related medicine.


EBRAINS is a new digital research infrastructure, created by the EU-funded Human Brain Project, that gathers an extensive range of data and tools for brain related research. EBRAINS aims to help translate the latest scientific discoveries into innovation in medicine and industry, for the benefit of patients and society. EBRAINS has been recognised as one of the best-in-class European research infrastructures and included in the ESFRI Roadmap 2021.
