EBRAINS welcomes Delft University of Technology as new associate member

Technical University of Delft Logo

The membership will give TU Delft 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.

TU Delft excels in pioneering methods and cutting-edge instrumentation for neurostimulation, with applications ranging from addressing tinnitus to Deep Brain Stimulation in patients grappling with Parkinson's disease. Notably, in the 4DEEG project, TU Delft has made significant strides in tracing signal propagation through the brain, a pivotal development to enhance the effectiveness of neurostimulation therapies.

“Unravelling the cause-and-effect dynamics within the human brain demands precise external neurostimulation signals and the ability to meticulously track their propagation. It's like looking for a needle in a haystack, but we're fortunate to have a clear picture of that needle."

Frans van der Helm
Professor of Biomechatronics and Bio-robotics, TU Delft

“Through this membership TU Delft researchers are poised to engage proactively in teams dedicated to digital neuroscience, brain medicine, and brain-inspired technology. This collaborative venture promises to unlock exciting avenues for advancing brain-related research, effectively bridging the gap between scientific discoveries and their real-world applications in medicine and industry. I think this collaboration can bring us a lot.”

Wouter Serdijn
Professor of Bio-Electronics, TU Delft

"We're very pleased to welcome Delft University of Technology as an associate member at EBRAINS. The university boasts considerable experience in the development of neurostimulation methods."

Katrin Amunts
Joint Chief Executive Officer of EBRAINS


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, atlasesmodelling 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 or visit

EBRAINS is listed on the ESFRI roadmap.
