Under the title Designing a European Brain Health Landscape, the project will identify priorities and opportunities in a shared Strategic Research and Innovation agenda (SRIA), ultimately preparing for a European Partnership on Brain Health.
A collaboration framework for existing initiatives and stakeholder communities in European neuroscience will be created, to better address the current and future health needs of EU citizens. 18 partner institutions from eleven countries are participating. The budget of the project, which is coordinated by the German Aerospace Center (DLR), is 1.2 million Euros for two years.
EBRAINS leads the work areas on “Research infrastructures and enabling services” and “Global outreach”. In this role, EBRAINS will advance strategic approaches to brain data and material sharing and will act as an intermediary between the CSA and other Research Infrastructures.
The project is part of the Horizon Health Europe Calls 2023 initiative.
“The allocation of funding to the CSA BrainHealth represents the recognition of the significance of brain health for the European economy and its long-term resilience. EBRAINS, serving as the unique distributed European Research Infrastructure devoted to brain research, holds a key role to tackle these complex challenges” commented Philippe Vernier, co-CEO of the EBRAINS AISBL.
