Graphene and Human Brain Project under review

The European Commission is launching an interim evaluation of the Human Brain Project and Graphene, two €1-billion research projects called Future and Emerging Technologies Flagships.

The evaluators’ assessment and recommendations, to be published in December, “will help fine-tune the current implementation of the Flagships and their governance model and pave the way for future FET Flagships,” said Thierry Van der Pyl, director at the Commission’s digital directorate-general, in a blogpost.

The evaluation panel will be led by Maria Chiara Carrozza, an Italian MP, former research minister and biomedical engineering professor at Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna. The four other members of the panel are: Charlotte Brogren, director-general of Vinnova; Ruth McKernan, chief executive of Innovate UK; Matthias Kleiner, president of the Leibniz Association; and Michał Kleiber, a former science minister of Poland.
