Aix-Marseille University (AMU) is organising an event entitled “Brain Research and Technology: How can Horizon Europe improve human brain health and performance” on Wednesday 6 March 2019 in Brussels (Venue: committee of the Regions, rue Belliard 99-101 1040 Brussels) from 9.00 to 16.00.

This symposium will aim to put forward proposals on the European Commission’s framework programme for research and innovation Horizon Europe.

The goals of this initiative are:

  • Presenting the newest developments in understanding and healing the human brain and how these improvements can provide solutions to global challenges targeted in Horizon Europe

  • Linking European researchers and industries involved in neuroscience and technologies

  • Exchanging views on Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe’s instruments (Missions, Partnerships,…) such as Human Brain Project, High Performance Computing and the European Open Science Cloud involved in this promising field

This conference will be held under the high patronage of MEP Françoise Grossetête and coordinated by Prof. Viktor Jirsa, Scientific Lead and Curator of The Virtual Brain, Principal Investigator of Human Brain Project (HBP) and Director of System Neuroscience Institute of AMU. It will enable European stakeholders, researchers across Europe and industries to have a high-level exchange with Members of the European Parliament and Representatives of the European Commission and Member States over the stakes involved.

AMU, as one of the four French universities awarded as Initiative d’excellence (IdEx), has decided since its foundation in 2012 to deepen its commitment at European scale for the benefit of the European Research Area.
