Falling Walls Lab Heat at Jülich
Jülich, 21 August 2015 – She only had three minutes. But that was enough for Sowmya Somanchi at the first Falling Walls Lab Jülich to give an extremely convincing presentation of her research with small electronic components. According to the motto "Great Minds, 3 Minutes, 1 Day", a total of 15 young scientists competed in the heat at Forschungszentrum Jülich. The top three contestants will now go on to the final and the Falling Walls Conference in Berlin on 8 and 9 November.

Modelling the Human Brain

To understand the human brain using simulation – that’s the vision of the Human Brain Project (HBP). In order to make it a reality, researchers from 23 countries are working together to build a unique infrastructure that will allow them to establish and further develop a brain research and information technology network. Jülich scientists will contribute their expertise primarily in the areas of structure and function of the brain, as well as supercomputing and simulation. more: Modelling the Human Brain …

The Human Brain Project

Scientists involved in the Human Brain Project aim to gain a deeper understanding of the human brain. This will not only help to understand what makes us human, but also lay the foundation for new therapies to treat brain-related diseases. New insights might also be useful for new approaches in information technology. Four videos highlight various aspects of research undertaken at Jülich within the European Human Brain Project.
