HBP Call for Expressions of Interest (CEoI): COVID-19 and its impact on the brain and mental health

A Human Brain Project (HBP) Call for Expression of Interest (CEoI) to support COVID-19 research, in particular in the field of COVID-19-related brain-disorders and mental health issues, by building on the strengths of EBRAINS research infrastructure. The successful applicant(s) will contribute, in close collaboration with HBP Partners, to the HBP project mission, complement expertise already present in the HBP, and use a portfolio of tools and services provided by EBRAINS to conduct the proposed work.

 
European digital infrastructures in support of coronavirus research

Several European research communities and infrastructures are currently joining forces through highly complementary activities to help researchers in addressing the current outbreak and finding a treatment for the novel coronavirus. This is done by boosting the availability, discoverability and management of the research data and outputs in line with the Open Science principles and providing supplementary cloud services.

 
Packing some power: storing energy at ultra high temperatures

Is it possible to store energy at extremely high temperatures of up to 2000ºC? What are the advantages of having such technology? And what are the challenges when it comes to developing it? These are just some of the burning questions scientists from the FET-Open Amadeus project are trying to answer at an experimental foundry in Norway.

 
Improving disease detection through ultra-high-field MRIs

The widespread adoption of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revolutionised clinical medicine, and the revolution has not stopped. Scientists in the FET-Open project are exploring ways to make MRIs even more effective - aiming to help patients get the best possible treatment through early disease detection.
