EBRAINS Preparatory Phase

EBRAINS PREP will allow EBRAINS to evolve from the largely EC-funded, Human Brain Project developed research infrastructure into a sustainable “Hub-and-Node” research infrastructure, on the ESFRI Roadmap with a new organisation framework.

EBRAINS PREP will put in place a financial, legal and governance framework for EBRAINS and prepare a plan to ensure the sustainable offering of the Service Capability by the Central Hub and the Nodes. Partners will commit to offer services needed by the brain research community by setting up EBRAINS Nodes. These will deliver a complete overall technical design and associated cost estimate for the Service Capability.

The project will also explore and decide on the legal structure that EBRAINS will adopt for the Operation Phase and produce draft statutes for EBRAINS in that structure.
