"Graphene" and "The Human Brain": the two ambitious European research projects


The European Commission published a report on its ambitious European science and technology Flagships. The report draws the lessons from setting up the first two such Flagships, Graphene and the Human Brain Project, each representing an investment of EUR 1 billion. It also sets out the future working arrangements for the two Flagships underway.

Flagships are a new instrument of research and innovation support under Horizon 2020. The Flagship model is designed to encourage visionary research with the potential to deliver scientific and technological breakthroughs with major benefits for European society and industry.

The report  "FET Flagships: A novel partnering approach to address grand scientific challenges to boost innovation in Europe" describes in detail the future open, transparent and inclusive governance structure for Flagships. It also covers other success factors such as the innovation strategy and links with industry, educational training programmes and responsible research and innovation.

The European Commission Vice President Neelie Kroes said: "The Human Brain Project and the Graphene Flagships have the potential to revolutionise science, boost industry and improve peoples’ lives with new products and medical treatments. No funding agency, no scientific community, no company, no Member State can achieve this alone: we need to find the best way to join forces and the Flagship model is here to stay."

Graphene – the wonder material

Graphene, a form of carbon in a one-atom-thick layer, has the potential to underpin new disruptive technologies, substituting materials used in existing applications and also leading to radically new markets and applications. The Flagship aims to take graphene and related layered materials from the realm of fundamental science to industrial and societal applications in the space of ten years. Novel composites, more efficient batteries and new types of sensors are examples of technologies that will benefit from graphene and related materials in a variety of fields: from energy to automotive technologies, and from chemical processes to aerospace. 

The Human Brain Project – building a computer model of the brain

Understanding the human brain is one of the key challenges of the 21st century. The Human Brain Project (HBP) aims to combine existing knowledge and data about the human brain for building a realistic computer model of the brain by 2023. Such a model will help researchers understand how the human brain works and the diseases affecting it. Neuroscientists have an essential role to play in succeeding such endeavour. The HBP will have a potentially massive impact in areas such as neuroscience, new treatments for brain disease, computing and robotics technologies.
