A standards organization for open and FAIR neuroscience

The mission of INCF is to develop, evaluate, and endorse standards and best practices that embrace the principles of Open, FAIR, and Citable neuroscience. INCF also provides training on how standards and best practices facilitate reproducibility and enables the publishing of the entirety of research output, including data and code.

INCF serves as a standards organization dedicated to open and FAIR neuroscience by vetting, endorsing, and promoting the use of community standards and best practices.

In our Special Interest Groups and Working Groups, users and developers work collaboratively to develop  community standards and best practices and implement them in tools and resources.

Be a part of the global INCF community: form or join a Special Interest Group, join one of our committees, attend our events, become a member, or stay in touch virtually.

The INCF neuroinformatics conference provides a forum for researchers, infrastructure providers, and developers to connect and train or be trained in neuroinformatics.

INCF provides informatics educational resources for the global neuroscience community both online and through in-person courses and workshops at the INCF Assembly.

In these stories from our community, you can read about how INCF-endorsed standards and best practices have improved collaborative projects by increasing interoperability.
