The 2013 Human Brain Project Summit is the project's inauguration event. The summit will bring together the top scientists from all over the world to plan the project's work for the next ten years.

The convergence between biology and ICT has reached a point at which it can turn the goal of understanding the human brain into a reality. It is this realization that motivates the Human Brain Project – an EU Flagship initiative in which over 80 partners will work together to realize a new "ICT-accelerated" vision for brain research and its applications.
