The HBP Education Programme offered innovative learning packages for early career researchers working in and across the fields of neuroscience, information and communications technology (ICT) and medicine. The programme especially targeted advanced master‘s-level and PhD students, as well as early post-doctoral researchers, from within and outside the HBP.
EBRAINS Workshops aimed to introduce participants to the opportunities provided by the EBRAINS Research Infrastructure and educate them on the resources that are offered by EBRAINS. The multi-day events combined plenary sessions with hands-on interactive workshop modules in which participants learned how to utilize and benefit from EBRAINS tools and services.
The HBP Curriculum on Interdisciplinary Brain Science offered web-based distance learning courses. It provideed basic lessons in the HBP core fields neuroscience, medicine, cognitive systems and ICT for early career researchers outside their area of specialisation, as well as courses on the subjects of ethics and intellectual property rights, translation and exploitation of research. By combining the online course with a participation in one of the HBP Education Programme event ECTS credits could be awarded.
An annual HBP Student Conference, organised by early career researchers for early career researchers, aimed to encourage collaboration and scientific exchange across the fields of neuroscience, brain medicine and computer science. At the conference, early career researchers got the chance to present their own research and engage in extensive discussions with peers and principle investigators from within and outside the HBP.
Young Researchers Events provided a setting for the EBRAINS Research Infrastructure to present the Project’s tools and results to early career scientists and future users. In addition, more specific EBRAINS Infrastructure Training Events provided hands-on training in the use of the various services and tools offered by EBRAINS.
