With Flagships, the European Commission proposes a new partnering model for long-term European co-operative research. This model is built around a large Core Project and several Partnering Projects. The FET Flagship Model is the implementation and Governance Model of the Flagship projects in Horizon 2020. The FET Flagship Staff Working document published by the EC sets out the future working arrangements and governance for the two existing Flagships (Graphene and the Human Brain Project). For more information, see the following documents and presentations.

What People are Saying

  • Collaborate, collaborate, collaborate. This is our opportunity.

    Prof. Karlheinz Meier, University of Heidelberg,
    Co-leader of the Neuromorphic Computing Subproject

  • The Human Brain is the most complex system that we know of. We would like to develop some kind of ‘google' brain where we can zoom in and out, see it from different perspectives and understand how brain structure and function is related. The ultimate aim of the Human Brain Project is to understand the human brain. This is only possible when we understand the structural organization of the human brain.

    Prof. Katrin Amunts, Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine,
    Forschungszentrum Jülich

  • The Human Brain Project will become a major driver of ICT in Europe.

    Prof. Thomas Lippert, Institute for Advanced Simulation, Jülich Supercomputing Centre,
    leader of the High Peformance Computing subproject
