Upcoming Calls

The Human Brain Project (HBP) aims to bring a large number of users to the HBP-Joint Platform  to make it even more attractive for the external science community and to foster new collaborations across the full width of the HBP’s Subprojects. To achieve this, a substantial amount of funding is available in the next two-year funding period (the SGA2) for partner organisations to help contribute.

The HBP is asking potential new Partners to submit proposals that will directly contribute to the development of the HBP Platforms and increase the scope of their application, in terms of neuroscience and clinical research. The selected Partners will become full Partners in the HBP Consortium.  The projects will run from April 2018 to March 2020 (SGA2 phase).

Please note that for some of the CEoIs, current Partners of the HBP Consortium are explicitly invited to write a proposal with new Partners and apply together. Details will be explicitly laid out in the Guide for Applicants.

You can also read our Frequently Asked Questions page.

(Please note: Funding for the following CEoIs for SGA2 are dependent on the successful application of the HBP to the European Commission (EC) for this next funding phase. SGA2 currently is in the Grant Preparation Phase.)

Further Calls for Expression of Interest (CEoI) are due to be published in December 2017.

  • Medical Informatics Platform – further details to be published.


SGA2 CEoI evaluation Process:

Independent external evaluators will assess the submitted proposals. This remote evaluation process will be followed by a physical panel meeting, which will make the final selection.

The results of the evaluation will be announced in the end of November or beginning of December 2017.

The selected projects will be funded via the European Commission grant for SGA2.

The CEoI are managed by the Technische Universität München (TUM) together with the coordinator Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) on behalf of the HBP Consortium. Applications will be received through the ECHORD++ system, kindly provided by TUM.
