The EPFL Blue Brain Project (BBP) is a Swiss National Research Infrastructure project, hosted by the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), which has spent the last 15 years trying to advance the cause of simulation neuroscience, where brain circuits including neurons and glial cells are digitally reconstructed using high-powered computing. The Project, whose ultimate goal is to digitally reconstruct and simulate the mouse brain, is supported and funded (to the tune of 20 million CHF per year) by the Swiss government (ETH Board) since 2011.
