Over the next several years, the FAS Research Development group will track and disseminate all funding opportunities related to the BRAIN Initiative. These funding opportunities will be sent to a targeted list of faculty. The list will include faculty affiliates of the Center for Brain Science (CBS) and the Mind Brain Behavior (MBB) Interfaculty Initiative. This project is being carried out in collaboration with the Center for Brain Science. All opportunities will be archived and recipients may unsubscribe at any time.

BRAIN Initiative Update

The scientific journal Nature reported on March 18, 2014 that the European Union's Human Brain Project and the United States' BRAIN Initiative will launch a collaboration later this year. Details are forthcoming but it is anticipated that all of the BRAIN Initiative's government partners - NSF, NIH and DARPA - will be involved. Israel's brain initiative is also expected to participate. The goal of this cooperation is to coordinate research programs and avoid duplication of effort, wherever possible.
