Dear members of NeuralEnsemble,

As you may know, the Human Brain Project is coming to an end in September and we are currently working hard on planning the future of the EBRAINS Research Infrastructure ( that was developed in this context. EBRAINS has started a survey to determine the interest in tools and services provided by EBRAINS. The results of this survey will inform decisions on priorities for funding applications.

The core of the survey is very short and contains only one question to indicate which tools are being used (or which you plan to use in the future.)

We hope you and your collaborators could contribute to this survey by filling it in at
and would in particular hope that you would tick the boxes of NeuralEnsemble software you are using such as Neo, Elephant (listed as "Electrophysiology Analysis Toolkit"), or PyNN, as well as other closely related tools such as the NEST simulation engine, the Model Validation Framework and Test Suites (NeuronUnit, NetworkUnit, HippoUnit,...), the KnowledgeGraph, fairgraph or openMINDS.

You can also suggest additional tools and services not in the list, which you think should be included in EBRAINS in future.

For the survey question "Relationship status on HBP and EBRAINS", if you are not working in an HBP-affiliated lab, "Stakeholder" is probably the most suitable answer, as there is no explicit category for "Tool User".

Information on all tools listed in the survey is available under or the "Tools description" link on the left edge of the survey page.
