EBRAINS welcomes Fundación de Investigación HM Hospitales as new associate member

EBRAINS is pleased to announce that the Fundación de Investigación HM Hospitales (FiHM) – a non-profit organization in Spain with the objective of leading biomedical research and development – has joined the EBRAINS AISBL as an associate member.

The membership went into effect on 31 August 2022. It will give FiHM the opportunity to co-design future iterations of EBRAINS’ cutting-edge tools and services. These state-of-the-art capabilities – which cover data sharing, atlasing, modelling, simulation, high-performance computing, and neurorobotics – aim to help European researchers to address major challenges in brain health, benefiting from insights into data science, brain organization, and artificial intelligence gathered from the EU Flagship Human Brain Project.

Fundación de Investigación HM Hospitales is a non-profit organization, established in 2003 with the fundamental objective of leading biomedical R&D, within the framework of translational research, which directly benefits the patient and society both in the treatment of diseases and in health care, with the aim of making Personalized Medicine a reality.

Neuroscientific activity within FiHM is represented by Centro Integral de Neurociencias AC (HM CINAC), which will offer high level expertise in neurodegenerative mechanisms and some special techniques used in humans and models such as focused ultrasound.

“EBRAINS will facilitate access and contact with a large number of resources and high level collaborations which is always a very welcome addition to a highly specialized center as HMCINAC”, added Prof. José Obeso, HM CINAC Director.


“We are delighted to welcome Fundación de Investigación HM Hospitales to EBRAINS” says CEO Paweł Świeboda. “It brings extensive experience in promoting and managing the development of biomedical research and innovation projects to benefit patients. Fundación de Investigación HM Hospitales will be a valuable partner in the clinical application of new technologies and tools for diagnosis, prevention and treatment of brain-related diseases.”


EBRAINS is a new digital research infrastructure (RI), created by the EU-funded Human Brain Project (HBP), to foster brain-related research and to help translate the latest scientific discoveries into innovation in medicine and industry, for the benefit of patients and society.

It draws on cutting-edge neuroscience and offers an extensive range of brain data sets, atlases, modelling and simulation tools, easy access to high-performance computing resources and to robotics and neuromorphic platforms.

All academic researchers have open access to EBRAINS’ state-of-the art services. Industry researchers are also very welcome to use the platform under specific agreements. For more information about EBRAINS, please contact us at info@ebrains.eu or visit https://ebrains.eu/

EBRAINS is listed on the ESFRI roadmap

About the Human Brain Project

The Human Brain Project (HBP) is the largest brain science project in Europe and stands among the biggest research projects ever funded by the European Union. It is one of the three FET Flagship Projects of the EU. At the interface of neuroscience and information technology, the HBP investigates the brain and its diseases with the help of highly advanced methods from computing, neuroinformatics and artificial intelligence and drives innovation in fields like brain-inspired computing and neurorobotics.
