During the final HBP Summit in Marseille, researchers Pieter Roelfsema and Philippe Ryvlin received this year's Innovation Awards for their work on a visual brain prosthesis for the blind, and a platform for Medical Patient Data. The innovation evaluation committee emphasised: “The innovations we selected all had high societal impact, and this impact could not have come about if the work was not of very high quality.”
The Human Brain Project (HBP) has published a new booklet to provide both an overview and a deeper look into some of the project’s latest results.
Over the last decade, HBP has been a driving force behind brain research at the intersection with computing and technology. In the project, researchers across Europe collaborate in a highly systematic approach to advance our understanding of the most complex system known to man – the human brain.
The new booklet includes in-depth feature articles, interviews with leading researchers and spotlight on latest research and innovation. A PDF version can be downloaded here.
After much anticipation, the Final Summit of the Human Brain Project started at Palais du Pharo in Marseille. The Summit was opened in the great Plenary Hall of the venue with a warm welcome from HBP Scientific Research Director Prof. Katrin Amunts.
At the end of the first day of the HBP Summit, three winners of the Best Abstract Awards were announced: Maria Sacha from CNRS - University Paris-Saclay, Julia Thönnißen from Forschungszentrum Jülich and Sophia Pieschnik from the University of Oslo. The winners were selected out of 173 submitted abstracts based on scientific quality by the Abstract Evaluation Committee.
An atmosphere of excitement and collaboration at the final summit of the Human Brain Project. Researchers, speakers, exhibitors and members of the public had the opportunity to meet in person at the Palais du Pharo in Marseille during the two Science Market days.
The Human Brain Project’s last Summit is starting today in Marseille. During four Keynote Sessions, which will take place on each day of the summit (28-31 March), leading researchers at the forefront of their fields of study will discuss their results and anticipate the future of digital neuroscience.
