HBP Summit 2023: Register now for the satellite events!

© HBP Education Programme

A full day of satellite events taking place on Monday, 27 March, will kick off the week of the Human Brain Project (HBP) Summit 2023 in Marseille, France. The satellite events include hands-on training sessions on HBP-developed tools and infrastructures as well as open forums for discussions.

Participants can choose from a wide range of topics covered by the 15 different sessions, some of which will be running in parallel, and will have the opportunity to exchange experiences with other researchers.

Participation is free, but registration is required and now open. Most sessions require an EBRAINS account (free of charge). Space is limited for the satellite events – register now to secure a spot. 

All satellite sessions at a glance:
