HBP takes part in the 3rd Annual Brain Initiative Investigators Meeting
Bethesda, 12-14 December 2016.
Several of the HBP's leading researchers and developers participated in the 3rd Annual BRAIN Initiative® Investigators Meeting 2016 on 12 - 14 December in Bethesda, USA. This event brought together a diverse crowd of US-based and international investigators from numerous brain science and technology research areas, US funding agencies, non-governmental organisations, members of the US Congress, patient groups and the public.
The US BRAIN Initiative (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies), is a collaborative, public-private research initiative announced by the Obama administration in April 2013. Its goal is to support the development and application of innovative technologies that can create a dynamic understanding of brain functions. The purpose of the Bethesda meeting was to provide a forum for discussing scientific developments and potential new directions, and to identify areas for collaboration and research coordination.
HBP representatives presented the European Commission FET Flagship's latest results and opportunities for collaboration during a one hour plenary session dedicated to the HBP, entitled "Human Brain Project: Complementary Initiatives, Collaborative Science".

What People are Saying
Collaborate, collaborate, collaborate. This is our opportunity.
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.
The Human Brain Project will become a major driver of ICT in Europe.
