Warning: The Collaboratory Drive will be down Friday 14th June , from 18:00 CET (my timezone) until Monday evening for a migration effort.



The following is a step by step guide to set up your accounts in HBP/EBRAINS.

Your EBRAINS user account

Collaboratory version 1 is deprecated and will be shutdown on September 2 2021 at 18:00 CEST. Users who do not yet have a Collaboratory 2 account are invited to register. Collaboratory 2 manages authentication for other EBRAINS services. Your Collaboratory 2 account is your EBRAINS account.

  1. If you are unsure if you have an EBRAINS (Collaboratory 2) account, try logging in to https://wiki.ebrains.eu. Use your institutional email address.
  2. If you do not have an EBRAINS account, you can register at https://ebrains.eu/register

Use your institutional email address

The EBRAINS Access Policy requires that all users' accounts be linked to their institutional email address (e.g. not a gmail account). Additionally, if you work at an institution that is part of the HBP Consortium or that is party to an HBP Partnering Project (PP), please make sure that the domain name of that email address explicitly identifies the institution you represent in the HBP Consortium or PP.

To check the email address linked to your EBRAINS account:

  1. Log in to https://wiki.ebrains.eu
  2. Click the profile icon at the upper right next to the Log-out icon  ProfileIcon.PNG
  3. Click the “Basic profile” button.  Basic_Profile.PNG
  4. To change the email address, please contact support@ebrains.eu

Do not create duplicate accounts. This is not authorized.

Request email address changes while you still have access to your email address on record. Requesting after you lose access to that email address is much more complicated.

Your HBP SGA3 accreditation

Users working for the HBP SGA3 project phase or for an HBP Partnering Project should request their corresponding accreditation.

Your SGA3 accreditation identifies which SGA3 Tasks you participate in. SGA3 accreditation is only available to users who work at one of the institutions in the HBP Consortium. This explicitly excludes any subcontracting done to companies that are not part of the HBP Consortium.

If you’re not in one of those institutions, you can still participate in the HBP & EBRAINS development. To access confidential information of the Consortium, you will need to request permission by writing to the information owner. You might also need to request access to specific resources or services.

  1. Please make sure you are a member of the Units corresponding to each SGA3 Task you participate in. This also allows users to give you permissions along with everyone else working in the same Task in just a few clicks.
    1. Log in to https://wiki.ebrains.eu

    2. These members perform work within your Task.
    3. These members are not requesting to join the Task's Admin Unit.

Your PP accreditation identifies which PP you participate in. PP accreditation is only available to users who work at one of the institutions in the corresponding HBP PP.
