What are Work Packages?

The original structure of the HBP grouped scientists by research focus in Subprojects as the primary operational structure. Quite quickly, that formal operational structure was complemented by cross-cutting ones, called Co-Design Projects, a key characteristic of which was that they brought together people whose primary focus on was on various research approaches with those who were more concerned with building research tools, thus addressing a particular neuroscientific question from different angles, and making sure that the collaboration between these Partners would result in an added value for both research and infrastructure. For SGA3, which started in April 2020, the HBP has taken that trend a step further, using a small number of larger, cross-disciplinary Work Packages as its operational structure.
