EBRAINS welcomes Inserm as new associate member

EBRAINS is pleased to announce that Inserm – the National Institute of Health and Medical Research in France – has joined the EBRAINS AISBL as an associate member.


The membership went into effect on 1 August 2022. It will give Inserm 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.

Founded in 1964, Inserm is a public scientific and technological institute which operates under the joint authority of the French Ministries of Health and Research. The institute is dedicated to biomedical research and human health, and is involved in the entire range of activities from the laboratory to the patient’s bedside. It also partners with the most prestigious research institutions in the world that are committed to scientific challenges and progress in these fields.

"We are thrilled to welcome Inserm as a member of EBRAINS," says EBRAINS CEO Paweł Świeboda. "The institute is known for its crucial role of strategic, scientific and operational coordination of biomedical research in France. It brings together basic and clinical neuroscientists to work on a range of topics, including the neurovascular system, multiscale imaging, and molecular and cellular mechanisms in brain aging. This partnership will allow us to build on the collaboration established over the course of the Human Brain Project."
