Successful Open Day Human Brain Project

Hundreds of students, scientists and citizens flocked to the Human Brain Project Open Day at the MECC Maastricht conference centre on 15 October. They watched enthusiastic researchers from various countries present their cutting-edge research projects. These all contribute to the main objective of the Human Brain Project (HBP): to build a research infrastructure that helps advance neuroscience, medicine and computing. It is one of the two largest scientific projects ever funded by the European Union. Launched in 2013, the 10-year project employs approximately 500 scientists at more than 100 universities, teaching hospitals and research centres across Europe.
