The Governing Countries contribute financially to INCF and sustain its activities, and set the agenda for global neuroinformatics through representation on the Governing Board. The Governing Members each form a Governing Node, which represents their national network and collectively contribute to the scientific operation of INCF. The membership fee for countries and regions is based on the country's or region's Gross Expenditure on Research and Development (GERD) and can be found in the INCF Understanding.
Associate Nodes represent countries or regions that have been Governing Members but are no longer contributing financially. Associate Nodes are active collaborators within the INCF Network and participate in the CTSI as a non-voting member.
