EBRAINS welcomes SISSA as new associate member
The membership went into effect on 17 February 2023. It will give SISSA 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 1978, SISSA – Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati is a leading scientific institute for research and postgraduate training based in Trieste, Italy. Neuroscientists at SISSA investigate the brain and the nervous system at different levels of organisation and by means of different techniques, focusing on brain (dis)functions along the perspectives of cognitive neuroscience, functional and structural genomics, and of neurobiology.
"Joining EBRAINS represents for SISSA a key step for a full valorisation of our expertise and contributions to the field, shared with the broad community of brain scientists world-wide," says Prof. Michele Giugliano, head of the Neuronal Dynamics Lab at SISSA, who has been partner of the HBP for many years and is among the founders of eBRAINS-Italy infrastructure supported by PNRR.
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, atlases, modelling 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or visit https://ebrains.eu/
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.
