Selected Projects will be funded via the European Commission grant for the next phase of the HBP (2016-2018 – see here), which should be approved in early 2016. This CEoI is managed by Jülich Forschungszentrum (scientific aspects and review process) and Technische Universität München (application and review process) on behalf of the HBP Consortium. Applications will be received through the ECHORD++ system, kindly provided by TUM for this Call. 

Projects selected will form a new Subproject 3 (Systems & Cognitive Neuroscience) in the SGA1 period. The HBP plans to allocate EUR 8.9 million EUR of SGA1 funding to the new SP3 (EUR 8 million for 4 research Proposals/Work Packages & EUR 0.9 million for Coordination).

The Call in Brief

The HBP is looking to add 4 systems & cognitive neuroscience projects which:

  • Bridge from basic anatomy and physiology to mapping and cognition, plus theory and modelling
  • Use and/or feed at least 2 HBP Platforms including specification of data and/or tools
  • Include two or more spatial and/or temporal scales
  • Provide actual simulation models and/or disease models related to the cognitive function you will study
  • Offer real-world applications (e.g.  software, atlases, robotics, neuromorphic computing, drug design, etc.).
