BRAINLEAP is the acronym of a 7th Framework Programme Collaborative Research Project. It ultimately aims at "A quantum leap: from a spike-centered brain universe to its underlying synaptic landscape", in the field of Neurotechnology.

BRAINLEAP is carried out by
a international academic consortium, established in 2012 and
coordinated by M. Giugliano (Univ. Antwerpen).

The project has been kicked-off in 2013, upon receiving  generous funding for 3 years under
the Future Emerging Technologies initiative of the Information and Communication Technologies Programme by the European Commission.

BRAINLEAP stems from a strong commitment by the partners to join forces and make significant contributions to the fundamental scientific domain of brain machine interfacing and neuroprosthetics.
