Neuron & EBRA Workshop
22nd January 2019

ERA-NET NEURON is a partner in the European Brain Council (EBC)-coordinated EU project European Brain Research Area (EBRA). EBRA was created as a catalyzing platform for brain research stakeholders to sup-port better exploitation of the large EU investments made in brain research, achieving critical mass and economies of scale by initiating, and fostering new global research initiatives.


Launch of EBRA
1st November 2018

EBRA was designed to respond to the Horizon 2020 call, SC1-HCO-10-2018, entitled “Coordinating European brain research and developing global initiatives”, which called for the reduction of fragmentation and duplication of research efforts, fostering synergies through enhanced coordination of brain research efforts at EU and at global level, improved access to and optimising the use of research infrastructures and data sources by the neuroscience research communities, thus ensuring better exploitation of the large investments made in brain research, achieving critical mass and economies of scale by initiating and fostering new global research initiatives, ...
