The HBP Education Programme offers 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 targets advanced master‘s-level and PhD students, as well as early post-doctoral researchers, from within and outside the HBP.

EBRAINS Workshops offer plenary sessions in combination with parallel hands-on workshop modules to present specific parts of the EBRAINS infrastructure and related science and to introduce early-career researchers to the “new way of doing neuroscience” that is fostered by the HBP and EBRAINS.

The HBP Curriculum on Interdisciplinary Brain Science offers web-based distance learning courses. It provides 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’s EBRAINS Workshops ECTS credits can be awarded.

An annual HBP Student Conference, organised by early career researchers for early career researchers, aims to encourage collaboration and scientific exchange across the fields of neuroscience, brain medicine and computer science. At the conference, early career researchers get 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 provide a setting for the HBP 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 provide hands-on training in the use of the various services and tools offered by EBRAINS.

Video material from all HBP Education Programme activities is collected and made available to the public via the HBP Education Programme E-library.
