European Brain Research Area


The European Brain Research Area (EBRA) is a 3-year Horizon2020-funded project, started in November 2018. The HBP coordinator EPFL is one of the four partners.



EBRA was created to catalyse initiatives for brain research stakeholders (researchers, clinicians, patients, governments, funders and public institutions), to streamline and better coordinate brain research across Europe, while fostering global initiatives.



The EBRA Consortium aims to facilitate efficient collaborations, communication and operational synergies, including transparent procedures and setting up of governance mechanisms; it will foster alignment and better coordination of research strategies across European and global brain initiatives.

The EBRA Call for Clusters is currently open. Its goal is to promote cooperation and exchange between brain research projects and to enable or enhance international collaboration and the development of clusters in all areas of brain research. The Call targets a number of cluster types: Potential, Emerging, Consolidated and Global clusters. For application instructions and deadlines, visit
