Open Call for EBRAINS Workshop events opened
The HBP Education Programme has published a new Call for Expression of Interest (CEoI) for EBRAINS Workshop events. Applicants from within and outside the HBP can request administrative and financial support provided by the HBP Education Programme for the planning and organisation of an EBRAINS Workshop.
EBRAINS Workshops are multi-day events that offer plenary lectures in combination with parallel hands-on workshop modules under an overarching theme. The programme should give an advanced introduction to specific topics, guide attendees through the opportunities of specific parts of EBRAINS Research Infrastructure (EBRAINS RI) and give introductory tutorials and trainings on specific parts of the Platforms. The goal is to introduce participants to the opportunities provided by the EBRAINS RI and educate them on the resources that are offered by EBRAINS.
The HBP Education Programme supports EBRAINS Workshop events that showcase one or more of the existing and upcoming EBRAINS areas and educate participants on how to use the respective resources and tools provided by EBRAINS:
