Jülich’s Neighbourhood Dialogue Seeks Science Slam King
Jülich, 15 June 2016 – Who is going to be Jülich’s Super Brain? This question will be answered on Wednesday, 22 June, in Jülich’s Kulturbahnhof starting at 17:30 when about 40 school students, trainees, and university students will be competing in the Jülich Science Slam. In short entertaining presentations, either as stand-up artists or as part of a team, the rhetoric specialists will devote themselves to the topic of electricity with the aim of getting the audience on their side.

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 …
