Third FLAG-ERA Call for Flagship Supporting Projects

On November 19, 2018, FLAG-ERA published the announcement of its third Joint Transnational Call (JTC2019) in support of projects in synergy with the Graphene Flagship and the Human Brain Project.

On November 19, 2018, FLAG-ERA published the announcement of its third Joint Transnational Call (JTC2019) in support of projects in synergy with the Graphene Flagship and the Human Brain Project. The call aims to add a third wave of transnational partnering projects to support and extend these two FET Flagship initiatives. It is designed to expand the current Flagships with new research contributing to the Flagship objectives in selected areas. New researchers and researchers already in the Flagships are equally eligible. Selected projects are expected to be integrated in the Flagships as Partnering Projects. An information webinar about the call will be organized on January 10, 2019. The pre-proposal submission deadline is February 19, 2019.

Call topics

The FLAG-ERA JTC 2019 comprises two topics, one for each Flagship. For each topic, the call covers a specific list of research areas. The list for the Human Brain Project can be found below

1. Development and maturation of cognitive processes and multisensory integration at micro- and macro-scales
2. The role of neurotransmitter systems in human cognition
3. Subcortical structures: from cognition to action
4. The neuroscience of decision-making
5. Studies on biological deep learning and combined declarative and working memory
6. Disease modelling and simulation
7. Single cell RNA sequencing of human and mouse brain
8. Predictive neuroinformatics: A trans-species approach
