What we do

The INCF network aims to promote the application of computational approaches to understanding the brain and to develop the infrastructure required to use computational methods to integrate and analyze diverse data across scales, techniques, and species to understand the brain and positively impact the health and well-being of society. Specifically, the network aims to:

Provide coordination of global neuroscience infrastructure through the development and endorsement of standards and best practices in support of open and FAIR (Findable Accessable Interoperable Reusable) neuroscience
Train researchers, administrators, and students on how neuroinformatics promotes:
  • Rigor and reproducibility
  • Open and FAIR science
  • Publishing the entirety of their research output: narrative, data, and code
Encourage neuroscience as discipline to move towards FORCE (FAIR, Open, Research-object based, and Citable Ecosystem)
Promote the advancement and continued development of neuroinformatics as a scientific discipline
