  • The publication Discover EBRAINS introduces the powerful EBRAINS research infrastructure to the world.

  • EBRAINS' ambition is to enable a new era in brain research, which is why we are proud to sponsor this important panel on the future of European research and innovation.

  • The EBRAINS infrastructure for neuroscience has officially submitted an application for inclusion in the ESFRI Roadmap 2021. EBRAINS offers researchers a comprehensive package of powerful tools, facilities and resources that have been jointly developed by scientists and engineers in the Human Brain Project, a ten-year European Flagship project running until 2023. ESFRI, the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures, plays a central role in establishing shared infrastructures for Science in Europe and helps guide decisions in research policy. The application of EBRAINS to the ESFRI Roadmap is supported by a ten-country strong coalition, led by France as Lead Country. Additional backing is provided in over 90 letters of support from European scientific institutions, medical associations and industry.

  • The next edition of Brain Matters, 'Brain Inspired Technology and Architectures' will take place on the 10th of December 2020 at 16:00 CET, and feature Steve Furber (University of Manchester), Rainer Goebel (Maastricht University) and Christopher Summerfield (University of Oxford).

    Optimizing neural networks on a brain-inspired computer

    22 July 2020

    Neural networks in both biological settings and artificial intelligence distribute computation across their neurons to solve complex tasks. New research now shows how so-called “critical states” can be used to optimize artificial neural networks running on brain-inspired neuromorphic hardware.
