EBRAINS welcomes Radboud University as new full member

Radboud University Logo

The membership went into effect on 1 September 2022. It will give Radboud University 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.

Radboud University is a leading Dutch university, known for its international orientation, wide range of academic disciplines, interdisciplinary research and push towards creating societal impact on regional, national and international levels. The campus is home to world-class research facilities, such as the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, devoted to understanding the mechanistic underpinnings of human cognition and behaviour in health and disease. In addition, Radboud University and Radboudumc have intensive collaborations with major multinational companies in the Netherlands and Europe and established strong cooperation with local and regional governmental agencies, civil society actors and other stakeholders.

EBRAINS represents the next step in the decades-long effort to provide standardised platforms for storing and processing neuroscience data. This will be a strategic infrastructure and enabler for advances in research but especially in bringing neuroscience to the clinic in developing applications for treating neuropathologies such as stroke, Parkinson’s and dementia. The Dutch EBRAINS network, led by Radboud University, will strategically contribute to developing and deploying these platforms and technologies.

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

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.
