      VirtualBrainCloud Kick-Off

    The Virtual Brain was successful in a recent Research and Innovation Call of the European Commission Horizon2020 program with the topic “Exploiting the full potential of in-silico medicine research for personalized diagnostics and therapies in cloud-based environments”.The newly formed VirtualBrainCloud consortium led by Prof. Ritter at Charité Berlin and Berlin Institute of Health comprises 17 European partners and is funded with mill€15. The main goal is to create a cloud-based brain simulation platform that integrates data from many centers and in the future can serve as clinical decision engine for patients with neurodegenerative disease. The consortium took up work in December 2018; the kick-off event for the VirtualBrainCloud took place on January 25th at Charité Univeristätsmedizin Berlin
