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?
