The INCF community currently stretches over four continents. Everyone is welcome to participate!
How to join INCF
Groups and individuals can participate in INCF activities on different levels. Countries or regions can join as a Governing Member with a Governing Node. This requires a financial contribution, as specified in the core documents: INCF Bylaws, Business Plan, and Understanding.
The INCF Governing Members set the agenda for global neuroinformatics through representation on the Governing Board. Together with the CTSI, the Board defines priorities and target areas for global neuroinformatics and shapes INCF initiatives related to standards, interoperability, datasharing and infrastructure for neuroscience, and takes an active role in defining international neuroinformatics training.
Individuals are welcome to join the community online and in person at events that we organize or participate in.
Please contact Head of Development and Communications Helena Ledmyr if you have questions regarding the organization or the process to become a Governing Member INCF.
