STOP EU’s The Human Brain Project – Project and programme management, education, dissemination and innovation

No to the Human Brain Project

Project and programme management, education, dissemination and innovation

This Subproject will support HBP decision-making, operate the management structure and European Research Programme, ensure transparency and accountability toward funders and stakeholders, and maintain standards of quality and performance. Its primary responsibilities will include coordination of the scientific roadmap, in particular supervision of the milestones and deliverables for the set-up, testing and operation of the HBP’s ICT platforms. During the ramp-up phase the subproject will have seven main operational objectives, namely, to:

Coordinate the HBP’s governance, leadership and decision making mechanisms, ensuring balanced representation for stakeholders while remaining lean enough to promote decisive action.

Implement the decisions of the Executive Committee, monitoring the project’s performance and ensuring that all governance, management, and administrative processes run smoothly.

Provide the project and the HBP Consortium with centralised support for Administration, IT Services, Media and Communications, Innovation and Technology Transfer, Science and Technology Coordination, and Science and Technology Dissemination.

Develop a framework for collaboration during the operational phase of the project that links all the partners under strong scientific leadership and professional project management, providing a coherent European approach and ensuring effective alignment of regional, national and European research and programmes.

Design and launch the HBP Competitive Calls Programme.

Design and coordinate a programme of transdisciplinary education, training young European scientists to exploit the convergence between ICT and neuroscience and creating new capabilities for European industry and academia.

Provide administrative management for projects selected through the HBP Competitive Call.

Plan the operational phase of the project.
