The membership, which went into effect on 1 January 2023, will give the Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI) the opportunity to co-design future iterations of EBRAINS’ cutting-edge tools and services. These state-of-the-art capabilities—which cover data sharing, atlasing, modelling, simulation, high-performance computing, and neurorobotics—aim to help European researchers to address major challenges in brain health, benefiting from insights into data science, brain organization, and artificial intelligence gathered from the EU Flagship Human Brain Project (HBP).


EBRAINS, an International non-profit Association under Belgian law, is a new digital research infrastructure, created by the EU-funded Human Brain Project, to foster brain-related research and to help translate the latest scientific discoveries into innovation in medicine and industry, for the benefit of patients and society.

It draws on cutting-edge neuroscience and offers an extensive range of brain data sets, atlases, modelling and simulation tools, easy access to high-performance computing resources and to robotics and neuromorphic platforms.

All academic researchers have open access to EBRAINS’ state-of-the art services. Industry researchers are also welcome to use the platform under specific agreements. 

Commenting on the membership Brian Lawlor, GBHI Site Director at Trinity College said: “The Global Brain Health Institute is delighted to become an associate member of EBRAINS. Membership will allow us to partner with other EBRAINS members across Europe to advance life course brain health and help achieve our mission of dementia prevention and improving brain health in vulnerable populations worldwide.” 

"We are very pleased to welcome the Global Brain Health Institute as an associate member at EBRAINS," says CEO of EBRAINS Paweł Świeboda. "The institute is dedicated to advancing brain health and improving care for patients with dementia across the world."

About the Human Brain Project

The Human Brain Project is the largest brain science project in Europe and stands among the biggest research projects ever funded by the European Union. It is one of the three FET Flagship Projects of the EU. At the interface of neuroscience and information technology, the HBP investigates the brain and its diseases with the help of highly advanced methods from computing, neuroinformatics and artificial intelligence and drives innovation in fields like brain-inspired computing and neurorobotics.
