    The Virtual Brain joins the EU Flagship the Human Brain Project

    The Virtual Brain was successful in two recent ‘digital infrastructure’ and ‘medical informatics platform’ calls of the EU Flagship The Human Brain Project (HBP) and officially joined the HBP in April 2018. A new co-design project ‘The Virtual Brain’ led by Professor Ritter (Charité Berlin and Berlin Institute of Health) has been created in HBP. The co-design project integrates research and development across different HBP subprojects. TVB’s central role comprises the development of multiscale simulations linking population and single-neuron level simulators, interfacing image processing pipelines and digital atlases to inform brain models and to generate a use case ‘The Neurodegenerative Virtual Brain’ for HBP’s Medical Informatics Platform.

    We warmly welcome our new partners within TVB-HBP:
    Drs. Daniele Marinazzo (University Ghent)
    Claus Hilgetag (Univeristätsklinikum Hamburg-Eppendorf)
    Agnes Flöel (Universitätsmedizin Greifswald)
    Lavinia Alberi (Swiss Integrative Center for Human Health)

    The Virtual Brain also strives to become a ‘Partnering Project’ of HBP to link in our non-European partners.
