    The Human Brain Project (HBP) launches four Calls for Expression of Interest (CEoIs) for new projects to directly contribute to the development of the research Infrastructure (EBRAINS). The calls cover: Brain Atlas and simulation, cognitive science, leaning theory, AI problems, neuro-symbolic processing for behaviour, engagement of industry, SMEs and start-ups.

    Four Calls for Expression of Interest from the Human Brain Project are:

    • Brain Atlas and simulation engine adapter construction
      For experts in computer engineering and software development interested in contributing to the building of one of the largest computational infrastructures in Europe dedicated to neuroscience.
    • Application of functional architectures supporting advanced cognitive functions to address AI problems of industrial relevance
      For organisations interested in the application of functional architectures to address AI and automation problems of industrial and commercial relevance, with special emphasis on vision.
    • High-level neuro-symbolic processing for guidance of goal-directed behaviour
      For cognitive neuroscientists, researchers in learning theory, Artificial Intelligence, and neurorobotics interested in developing neural network models of working memory and selective attention for temporary information processing and guidance of goal-directed behaviour.
    • Engagement of Industry, SMEs and start-ups
      For companies, most notably SMEs and technology-based start-ups, operating in the field of digital neurosciences interested in the development of tools and services for the shared EBRAINS digital brain Research Infrastructure (RI).

    Pre-proposal submission deadline is 16 September 2020
