The HBP Curriculum on Interdisciplinary Brain Science combines web-based distance learning courses and face-to-face workshops that provide basic lessons in the HBP core fields neuroscience, medicine and ICT as well as the complementary subjects of ethics and intellectual property rights.

The courses are open to the whole scientific community, regardless of affiliation with the HBP, but especially target the following groups:
• Master‘s students already carrying out research
• PhD students
• Researchers who have received their doctoral degree within the past three years at the time of their application for training

The workshop programmes are based on the respective online lectures and provide deeper insights as well as practical exercises. Video lectures are publicly available. Each online lecture is supplemented by a discussion forum and additional learning material for each course. 





Participants have the possibility of taking an exam related to the online content of the courses. Upon successful completion, ECTS credits can be awarded. The credits are awarded by the Medical University of Innsbruck / Austria (MUI) if the following conditions are fulfilled:
