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.
The Exscalate4CoV consortium, coordinated by Dompé farmaceutici, has conducted the biggest supercomputing experiment ever done on the SARS-CoV-2 virus in order to find potential drugs to treat COVID-19.
Five research organisations from the EU and South Korea have signed a letter of intent (LOI) for international joint research on COVID-19 treatment. This agreement covers the exchange of clinical and nonclinical trial information related to their research on COVID-19 treatment using the repurposed Raloxifene molecule.
The Spotlight Series of the Human Brain Project presents how the flagship’s researchers use their expertise and e-infrastructure to contribute in the global fight against the novel coronavirus.
Behind the Exscalate4CoV project stands an unprecedented consortium of the best scientific minds in the technological and bio-medical fields. Supported by €3 million of emergency EU funding, an increasing number of pharmaceutical companies and research institutes have recently joined the quest to find a drug to treat the coronavirus.
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.
The European Commission has offered its support in the field of high-performance computing (HPC) in order to help find a treatment for the novel coronavirus.
The whole world is currently dealing with a novel coronavirus pandemic and we all want to try to understand what the future may hold. Using computer-based models would allow us to keep up with the spread and evolution of the pandemic.
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.
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.
