European Commission announces 2nd phase for FET-Flagships
The Human Brain Project and the Graphene Flagships have recently received additional funding of €89 million each from the European Commission for the next 2 years of their 10-year project. The two Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Flagships have completed their initial ramp-up phase (from October 2013 to March 2016), funded with € 54 million. The second phase will last from 1 April 2016 (retroactively) until the end of March 2018.
A review carried out in 2016 provided a thorough assessment of the progress of the Flagship and its achievements in its ramp-up phase, as well as a number of recommendations to consider for its next phase.
