The European Science Foundation (ESF), l'Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) have been selected as Consortium partners for the new European Commission funded SCOPE project. The Grant Agreement has been signed by all partners and the project will be launched in 2017. SCOPE aims to co-ordinate and enhance the partnership environments between the two European Commission's Future and Emerging Technology (FET) Flagships – the Graphene Flagship, represented here by ESF and the Human Brain Project through EPFL, one of its 117 Partner institutions. FECYT will act as the lead co-ordinator of the overall SCOPE project.

What People are Saying

  • Collaborate, collaborate, collaborate. This is our opportunity.

    Prof. Karlheinz Meier, University of Heidelberg,
    Co-leader of the Neuromorphic Computing Subproject

  • The Human Brain is the most complex system that we know of. We would like to develop some kind of ‘google' brain where we can zoom in and out, see it from different perspectives and understand how brain structure and function is related. The ultimate aim of the Human Brain Project is to understand the human brain. This is only possible when we understand the structural organization of the human brain.

    Prof. Katrin Amunts, Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine,
    Forschungszentrum Jülich

  • The Human Brain Project will become a major driver of ICT in Europe.
