In 2012, the Human Brain Project summarised its goal:

“The Human Brain Project should lay the technical foundation for a new model of ICT-based brain research, driving integration between data and knowledge from different disciplines, and catalysing a community effort to achieve a new understanding of the brain, new treatments for brain disease and new brain-like computing technologies.”

After ten years of intensive, impactful, interdisciplinary work by hundreds of researchers across Europe and beyond, the HBP has delivered.
