Competitive Calls Programme
The call for systems & cognitive neuroscience projects is now closed. 57 eligible proposals were submitted, and underwent the evaluation process. Independent evaluators were chosen based on their expertise in various fields of research related to the Call, covering topics such as cognitive neuroscience, systems neuroscience, theory, neuroinformatics, simulation and many more. Thirty-seven percent of the evaluators, who were from 17 different countries, were female, which is a remarkably high number compared to other research projects.
After a remote evaluation phase, a physical panel meeting took place in August 2015, and the results of the evaluation were published in September 2015. The selected projects will be funded via the European Commission grant for SGA1.
This CEoI was managed by Forschungszentrum Jülich (scientific aspects and review process) and the Technische Universität München (application and review process), on behalf of the HBP Consortium. Applications were received through the ECHORD++ system, kindly provided by TUM for this Call.
The Call in Brief
The HBP wanted to add four systems & cognitive neuroscience projects which:
- Bridged from basic anatomy and physiology to mapping and cognition, plus theory and modelling
- Used and/or fed at least two HBP Platforms including specification of data and/or tools
- Included two or more spatial and/or temporal scales
- Provided actual simulation models and/or disease models related to the cognitive function studied
- Offered real-world applications (e.g. software, atlases, robotics, neuromorphic computing, drug design, etc.).
