Google Scholar lists about 855 papers mentioning the term "blue brain project", the Human Brain Project's predecessor:


And even though the project has just launched, there are already about 1,980 papers mentioning the term "human brain project":


The "Human Brain Project" was also an NIH funding initiative in the 1990s, which was hugely influential in kickstarting the field of neuroinformatics (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuroinformatics)

Ah, thanks I didn't know about that.

Okay, so to correct my earlier comment to (hopefully) exclude the earlier project, Google Scholar shows about 105 results for "human brain project" in 2012-2013.


'already'? This has been going since 1989, that's a funny definition of already that you are using!
