To offer training in the use of the various Platforms that make up the HBP Scientific Research Infrastructure and encourage user engagement, Young Researchers Events are organised to provide a setting in which the HBP Platform Subprojects can present their tools and results to early career scientists and future users.

Infrastructure User Training courses are more specific formats providing hands-on training in the use of the various tools and services offered by the HBP.

Public event: EBRAINS - New enabling infrastructure for neuroscience, 25 November 2019

This event is open to the entire scientific community and aims to introduce EBRAINS, with an overview of interdisciplinary efforts for the advance of digital neuroscience presented by HBP leadership and experts.

Attendance is free of charge, but registration is mandatory. The number of participants is limited to 100 due to on-site capacity of the venue. >> more

How to increase the FAIRness of your research - an HBP training course about data sharing, 26 November 2019

This full-day course will teach you how to share your data with greater impact, by promoting the FAIR Guiding Principles for data sharing (Wilkinson et al., Sci. Data 3, 2016). The course includes several practical exercises and discussions about the FAIR Guiding principles and thereof derived best practices for data sharing. We will also take you through the complete workflow for publishing data via the HBP data sharing platform using either your own data or an example dataset. >>more

2nd HPAC Platform Training

During this 2nd HPAC Platform Training Event we will give an introduction to the resources, tools and services provided by the High Performance Analytics and Computing (HPAC) Platform and by the Fenix infrastructure. The different options to get access to High-Performance Computing (HPC) and data resources, as well as how to use Fenix resources and services in workflows will be presented, including sessions on how to transfer between HPC sites and how to access resources from Jupyter notebooks in the HBP Collaboratory. The participants will get an overview of the visualization tools available in the HBP. The simulator NEST, for models with point-neurons will be introduced, including more in-depth sessions introducing NEST Desktop, NESTML and an outlook to NEST 3. Another session will deal with the coupling of the simulators NEST and TVB.

The agenda of this 2nd HPAC Training is aligned with the programme of the other events taking place in parallel so that participants of one event can also attend some sessions of the other events that are also relevant for them.

Some sessions of this training are organised by the HBP High-Level Support Team (HLST). The services offered by the HLST can be found here: HLST website


The goal of the CodeJam workshops is to catalyze open-source, collaborative software development in computational and systems neuroscience and neuroinformatics by bringing together researchers, students and engineers to share ideas, present their work, and write code together. >> more
