Open / close summary

Paris Brain Institute is pleased to announce its membership to EBRAINS AISBL, a new digital research infrastructure (RI), created by the EU-funded Human Brain Project (HBP), to foster brain-related research.

The membership went into effect on 1 August 2022. It will give Paris Brain Institute 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.


“We are delighted to welcome Institut du Cerveau as a member of EBRAINS. As one of Europe’s leading research centres, it brings with it a wealth of expertise of its 25 scientific teams, covering a range of areas from cognitive neuroscience to computational modelling. We will easily build synergies in our joint effort to understand brain mechanisms at multiple scales.” Paweł ŚWIEBODA EBRAINS CEO


EBRAINS is a new digital research infrastructure (RI), created by the EU-funded Human Brain Project (HBP), 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 neuromorphicplatforms.

All academic researchers have open access to EBRAINS’ state-of-the art services. Industry researchers are also very welcome to use the platform under specific agreements. For more information about EBRAINS, please contact us at or visit
