Mediation Process Working Groups Submit Recommendations for Decision
Jülich, 9 March 2015 – The mediation process for the Human Brain Project (HBP) is now entering its decisive phase. In October 2014, the HBP’s board of directors (BoD) commissioned a mediation report from Prof. Wolfgang Marquardt. Two working groups of 30 international experts, both within the project and external, have now delivered their recommendations for action to the BoD who will make a decision on the proposals in their meeting on 17/18 March. The report will be published after the decision has been taken. The members of the mediation group are experts in various fields of research relevant to the HBP and have experience in science management and in managing large-scale projects in the public sector and in industry.
