Europe gives 2bn euros to science: The human brain project is one of the two main winning initiatives

Research projects investigating the “miracle material” graphene and the human brain have won the largest research excellence award in history, as battle for sustained science funding continues.

The European Commission announced the winners of a multi-billion euro competition of Future and Emerging Technologies (FET).

The Human Brain Project will attempt to build a computer-based copy of a human brain to understand neurological disorders and the effects of drugs. Further info available here.
