EBRAINS welcomes Stockholm University as new associate member

Stockholm University Logo

The membership went into effect on 1 January 2023. It will give SU 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.

Stockholm University contributes to the development of a sustainable democratic society through knowledge, enlightenment and the pursuit of truth.

“At Stockholm University (SU) research on the brain and its relation to behavior, including both basic cellular and molecular research and research using different brain imaging technologies, is currently in a very intense developmental phase. The membership in EBRAINS will further foster this development by giving SU an important platform for collaboration and access to cutting-edge, state of the art, services and tools.”

Professor Håkan Fischer
Department of Psychology, Stockholm University

"I am delighted to welcome Stockholm University among EBRAINS’ members. The University brings in its unique expertise in neurochemistry and molecular neurobiology. It has an impressive record of achievement in the study of disorders of the nervous system. I look forward to how we will co-shape the future of the EBRAINS Research Infrastructure together."

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


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.
