This video explains the concept of the European Research Area, a unified area open to the world, in which scientific knowledge, technology and researchers circulate freely. It explains how European policies are geared towards removing barriers and putting the conditions in place so that scientists can move more easily, have better access to funding and concentrate on their research.
Just imagine being able to surf through the brain and its 86 billion neurons - well now you can! Scientists have developed the first high-definition 3D model of a complete human brain - it is called BIG BRAIN.
Videomessage from Neelie Kroes,Vice-President, European Commission at "The future of Europe is science" Conference in Lisbon (PT)on October 7th,2014.
Neelie Kroes explains open, digital science: a new trend helping scientists, citizens and society...........We are giving EU industry the global lead... like ground-breaking flagships for computers based on the human brain, and the new "wonder material" Graphene.
Have a look at this video promoting the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Open Research Funding Scheme. FET Open supports early-stage joint science and technology research around new ideas for radically new future technologies.
The goal of the Human Brain Project is to build a completely new information computing technology infrastructure for neuroscience and for brain-related research in medicine and computing, catalysing a global collaborative effort to understand the human brain and its diseases and ultimately to emulate its computational capabilities.
