EBRAINS National Node Germany Workshop 2023 - Agenda

Tuesday, 26 September 2023
EBRAINS National Node Germany Workshop 2023

The EBRAINS National Node Germany (NNG) invites to the first EBRAINS NNG Workshop as a back-to-back event of the Bernstein Conference 2023 in Berlin, Germany. You will hear about the EBRAINS RI, its usage, an Expert Discussion on “Digital tools to bridge the gap between experimental and computational neuroscience” and will have the opportunity to network during our NNG lunch.

EBRAINS is a unique digital Research Infrastructure (RI), created by the EU-funded Human Brain Project. It is an open platform providing an extensive range of data and tools to enhance brain-related research. EBRAINS is a pan-European distributed network of services, that will in the future be organized through National Nodes.

The EBRAINS NNG are currently about 40 universities and research institutions across Germany joining forces to develop a common scientific and technical strategy, addressing the major scientific challenges of our time. The EBRAINS NNG partners offer unique services, including science liaison activities, for basic neuroscience, medical applications, and industry in the fields of:

  • High-Performance Computing
  • Neuromorphic Computing
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Simulation
  • Robotics
  • Information privacy and security

Contact information:

  • Scientific Coordinator of the NNG: Prof. Dr. Nicola Palomero-Gallagher
