    Four new calls for collaborative projects are open by the Human Brain Project (HBP) to look for potential new partners to submit proposals that will directly contribute to the development of the HBP Platforms.

    The calls are an important part of the HBP's work, bringing together novel approaches, data, theory and collaborative platforms to generate new insights into the brain and to ensure the project delivers on its scientific and social goals.

    The deadline for submission for all calls is 30 September 2017. The selected partners will become full partners in the HBP Consortium. The projects will run from April 2018 to March 2020.

    These calls have a substantial amount of funding, and have the aim of fostering new collaborations across the full width of the HBP subprojects and the scientific community:

    • Co-designing the HBP digital infrastructure for advancing the understanding of multilevel brain organisation (EUR 1'839'424.00; split between two selected proposals). 
    • Coordination of data protection in the HBP (EUR 318'750.00; one proposal will be selected).
    • Modelling allosteric drugs (EUR 225'000.00; one proposal will be selected).
    • Coordination of gender equality activities (EUR 156'250.00; one proposal will be selected).
