How the Human Brain Project can drive brain health innovation

You can now enjoy the slide deck from this session, which took place at the 2013 SharpBrains Virtual Summit (September 19-20th).

How can we har­ness the Human Brain Project to max­i­mize its future health and well-being ben­e­fits? In early 2013, the Euro­pean Union selected the Human Brain Project,  coor­di­nated by Lausanne’s Fed­eral Insti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy (EPFL), as the recip­i­ent of over 1 bil­lion euros/ 1.3 bil­lion dol­lars over the next ten years. How can the research agenda of this major ini­tia­tive, and closely related ones, be orga­nized and aug­mented with part­ner­ships with the pri­vate sec­tor and cross-sector stake­hold­ers? How can we start build­ing brain heath inno­va­tion plat­forms and deliv­ery sys­tems at the inter­sec­tion of neu­ro­science, IT, and engineering?
