Human Brain Project
The Human Brain Project (HBP) is a 10-year FET Flagship initiative launched in 2013 with a budget of €1 billion aimed to improve infrastructure for the development of neuroscience, medicine, and computing. The HBP consortium consists of more than 500 scientists from over 130 research institutions, teaching hospitals, and universities across the EU.
During the 3-year proposal phase, HBP utilized EMDESK’s development services to successfully address the challenges they started facing, including management of the vast number of users and data in their huge consortium. EMDESK became a secure and flexible platform for reporting, collaboration, and completing daily project administration and budget tasks.
Graphene is an EU-funded 10-year FET flagship project launched in 2013 with a budget of €1 billion and a consortium of over 145 industrial and academic research groups from 21 countries. The flagship brings researchers together to take graphene from the realm of academic laboratories into EU society.
Graphene faced a number of challenges in information management and coordination, including inefficient communication and reporting, non-networked systems without central management and many redundant tasks, as well as a lack of a secure and confidential working environment. With EMDESK, those challenges were mastered, and processes and communication optimized.
For over a decade, EMDESK is a leading provider of project and work management solutions for research and innovation projects proudly supporting thousands of projects, from small ones to billion Euro projects involving 150+ organizations.
In 2001, L-up began its business consultancy service for researchers and industries. In time, L-up was able to expand its services into bigger fields, such as economy, energy, digital economy, finance, health, security, and much more. L-up works with internationally recognized research institutions and innovative SMEs designing collaborative European research projects. Project teams benefit from L-up’s collaboration and expertise throughout the project life cycle – inception, implementation, and delivery.
Project management comes with many challenges, including how to share sensitive information online in a secure environment or how to manage growing shared agendas and numerous mailing lists. EMDESK was able to provide a secure and straightforward solution to this and many other problems, allowing L-up to complete almost 50 successful proposals and projects in a secure environment.

EMDESK provides us useful solutions and helps us a lot with project management! At CIRCE we were looking for a good tool to manage our coordinated EU projects. We started using EMDESK with one project and then quickly switched other running projects, as it gives us accuracy and an integral control over the projects. In addition, we are very happy with the technical and commercial support we receive. We strongly recommend the tool!
