HBP presents at US BRAIN Initiative meeting
The Human Brain Project was invited again by the US BRAIN initiative to participate in their fourth annual meeting in Washington DC, April 9th-11th. The project will present recent developments in the HBP's data, modelling and analytics infrastructure and engage with researchers overseas.
A focus session will be held on Wednesday, April 11th entitled “The Human Brain Project: European Neuroscience, Infrastructure, Highlights and Collaboration Opportunities”.
The HBP is also contributing to a session where different projects will be presented, that the newly founded International Brain Initiative (IBI) aims to support and coordinate on a global level. The IBI is a forum to connect the large scale brain initiatives around the world. (see World’s Brain Initiatives Move Forward Together, December 11 2017).
We invite any curious mind to discuss with us at the project posters that will be displayed throughout the duration of the meeting. Besides, researchers of the consortium will also present their HBP work related during the poster sessions (see below table for topics and board location).

The Human Brain Project: European Neuroscience, Infrastructure, Highlights and Collaboration Opportunities - 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM - Brookside AB
Speakers: Drs. Katrin Amunts, Jan Bjaalie, Karheinz Meier, Alain Destexhe, Simon Eickhoff, Chris Ebell, Eilif Muller, Viktor Jirsa
Come and see a selection of The Human Brain Project's (HBP) research highlights and get an update on developments in the HBP's data, modelling and analytics infrastructure. The HBP is a European FET Flagship project conducting neuroscientific and interdisciplinary research using high-throughput and high-fidelity data collection, neuroinformatics, brain modelling and atlases complemented with fundamental research in mathematics, physics, computer science and information theory. Also presented will be newly established, concrete support programmes for external collaborations
The entire programme is available on the 4th Annual BRAIN Initiative meeting website (here).
On Tuesday night the Human Brain Project presented at the Swiss Embassy in Washington.
Speakers included (top left to right) the HBP's Karlheinz Meier and Jan Bjaalie, and the EU representative to the US Mary Kavanagh.
