Interactive Computing e-Infrastructure for the Human Brain Project (ICEI)
In the ICEI project, five leading European supercomputing centres, namely BSC, CEA, CINECA, CSCS and the JSC, are committed to develop a set of computing and data services that will be federated across the consortium. The project is funded by the European Commission under the Framework Partnership Agreement of the Human Brain Project and is the first implementation project of the Fenix research infrastructure. The services that are offered by the Fenix infrastructure have been developed in a close collaboration with researchers from the HBP and were designed based on use cases from HBP neuroscientists. The distinguishing characteristic of this e-infrastructure is that data repositories and scalable supercomputing systems are in close proximity and well integrated.
