EBRAINS provides digital tools and services which can be used to address challenges in brain research and brain-inspired technology development. Its components are designed with, by, and for researchers. The tools assist scientists to collect, analyse, share, and integrate brain data, and to perform modelling and simulation of brain function.
EBRAINS’ goal is to accelerate the effort to understand human brain function and disease.
This EBRAINS research infrastructure is the entry point for researchers to discover EBRAINS services. The services are being developed and powered by the EU-funded Human Brain Project.

EBRAINS is open to integrating brain research technologies developed elsewhere and seeks collaboration with other research infrastructures. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with inquiries.
The EBRAINS AISBL
EBRAINS is an AISBL (Association Internationale Sans But Lucratif) under Belgian Law. Its mission is to coordinate the Human Brain Project (HBP) in SGA3 (2020 - 2023) and to build the future of the EBRAINS Research Infrastructure.
The HBP’s explicit goal is to develop the EBRAINS research infrastructure and make it available to the scientific research community and other user groups, as a beneficial legacy that will continue to help advance knowledge and understanding of the brain after the end of the HBP FET Flagship in 2023. The EBRAINS AISBL will play a key role in bringing about that transformation and will provide the coordination nucleus of the post-FET Flagship EBRAINS structure.
An Association Internationale Sans But Lucratif, or International not-for-profit association, is the legal term used in Belgium for an internationally acting non-profit organization based on Belgian law and located in Belgium.
