Summary

Community collaborationOur aim is to facilitate community work that aligns with INCF’s mission and strategic objectives. Funding will drive forward initiatives that address demonstrable neuroscience use-cases and have strong potential for community support and uptake. INCF will award seed funding approximately twice per year.

Funds are awarded in five main categories:

  • Project grants (expected range $2000-$20000) Intended to fund efforts like pilot studies, tool integration, or foundation work to set up a consortium and/or prepare for further grant applications. Also funds development of training material and tutorials. The leader of a funded proposal must be based in one of the 6 Governing Members in the INCF network*, and must commit to sharing products from the final project, such as reports, data, code, and training materials.
  • Workshop grants (expected range $2000-$20000) Intended to fund workshops, work group meetings and the like. The leader of a funded proposal must be based in one of the 6 Governing Members in the INCF network*, and must commit to sharing products from the final project, such as reports, data, code, and training materials.
  • Travel grants Intended to fund lab visits for collaboration or knowledge exchange, or speaking/teaching engagements. Not intended for merely attending meetings or courses. The person travelling or the person hosting needs to be based in one of the 6 Governing members in the INCF network*
  • Development of neuroinformatics curricula (expected range $1000 to $3000). Applicants should develop a Program of Study for either the Bachelor’s or Master’s level of study.
  • Course grants (expected range $2000-$20000). Funds may be used to support the inclusion of neuroinformatics lectures in existing courses, support the video recording of existing neuroinformatics-related courses, and support the development of neuroinformatics-related training materials, as well as support the holding of in-person courses and hackathons.
