The overall idea underpinning EBRA is to coordinate and synergise brain research projects and initiatives at both European and global level in order to foster the efficiency of efforts in brain research.
EBRA brings together the brain research community at large, the major brain research initiatives, research funding networks and all relevant stakeholders at European level and beyond, to ensure the overall delivery of the research potential. This has to be achieved in a way that is non-overlapping (or even detrimental) and actually builds on the efforts already done by the ongoing large initiatives such as the Human Brain Project (HBP), the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), Joint Programming on Neurodegenerative Diseases (JPND), and the Network of European funding for Neuroscience Research (NEURON). Ultimately, EBRA aims at integrating these initiatives at higher level to create a true added value by aligning strategies and optimising research investments and effort.
