Fifth Call for Expression of Interest for Human Brain Project's final phase opened


20 Sep 2019 Lausanne - A Call for Expression of Interest (CEoI) is now open for organisations interested in preparing cellular-level models for portable high-performance computing (HPC) simulation using Arbor: "Preparing Cellular-Level Models for Portable HPC Simulation using Arbor".

The budget is 900.000 euro for 2 proposals. The pre-proposal submission deadline is November 6, 2019 - 16:00 UTC (17:00 CET). The proposal submission deadline is December 4, 2019 - 16:00 UTC (17:00 CET).

All applicants must submit a pre-proposal and the full proposal by the given deadlines.

Applications are welcome at the Human Brain Project Calls page.

Four Calls for Expression of Interest (CEoIs) are now open for new projects to directly contribute to the development of the research Infrastructure (EBRAINS) and increase the scope of its application in terms of innovation, neuroscience and clinical research.

The CEoIs are for external applicants outside the current HBP Consortium or not currently involved in the HBP.

All applicants must submit a pre-proposal and the full proposal by the given deadlines.

Applications are welcome at the Human Brain Project Calls page.

The four CEoIs are the following:

1. Validation and Inference

The goal of the specific CEol is to attract experts in model validation to independently validate the brain models against available experimental evidence. The budget is 700.000 euro for 1 proposal. The pre-proposal submission deadline is November 4, 2019 - 16:00 UTC (17:00 CET). The proposal submission deadline is December 2, 2019 - 16:00 UTC (17:00 CET).

2. Brain atlas and simulation engine adapter construction

The goal of the specific CEoI is to attract experts in computational services related to the informatics integration of Brain Atlas and The Virtual Brain. The budget is 450.000 euro for 1 proposal. The pre-proposal submission deadline is November 4, 2019 - 16:00 UTC (17:00 CET). The proposal submission deadline is December 2, 2019 - 16:00 UTC (17:00 CET).

3. Whole brain multi-parametric imaging using invasive and non-invasive recordings

The goal of the specific CEoI is to attract experts in the field of multimodal multiparametric brain imaging across scales. The budget is 450.000 euro for 1 proposal. The pre-proposal submission deadline is November 4, 2019 - 16:00 UTC (17:00 CET). The proposal submission deadline is December 2, 2019 - 16:00 UTC (17:00 CET).

4. Rodent microcircuits

The goal of the specific CEoI is to attract experts in the field of rodent microcircuit modellling for across-scales methodological validation. The budget is 900.000 euro for 1 proposal. The pre-proposal submission deadline is November 4, 2019 - 16:00 UTC (17:00 CET). The proposal submission deadline is December 2, 2019 - 16:00 UTC (17:00 CET).
