First HBP Stakeholder Webinar Series

We would like to invite you to join in the first HBP Stakeholder Forum Webinar.

HBP Stakeholder Forums allow HBP researchers and external stakeholders to discuss matters around controversial issues concerning HBP research. They take the form of online webinars, which include guest speaker presentations and plenary discussions, and face-to-face seminars.

All interested parties are warmly invited to attend the first webinar, which will take place on 6 February 2017 at 10.00-12.00 CET. The scope of this webinar encompasses the ethical, legal, and practical consequences of one of the most disputed topics in bioethics — Informed Consent. This involves the disclosure of information to a human subject (e.g. a patient) before they decide to accept a certain treatment or intervention. Guest speakers will include Dr. Stephen Rainey (De Montfort University), Prof Søren Holm (University of Manchester), Dr. Daniela Ovadia (University of Pavia), and Dr. Dianne Gove (Alzheimer Europe).

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.

    Prof. Thomas Lippert, Institute for Advanced Simulation, Jülich Supercomputing Centre,
    leader of the High Peformance Computing subproject
