The Alzheimer’s Disease Data Initiative (ADDI), a 501(c)(3) medical research organization (MRO), is dedicated to fundamentally transforming Alzheimer’s disease (AD) research, accelerating progress towards new treatments and cures for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. We see a future where open data and global collaboration power the end of AD. Read more
The global scale of neuroinformatics offers unprecedented opportunities for scientific collaborations between and among experimental and theoretical neuroscientists. To fully harvest these possibilities, coordinated activities are required to improve key ingredients of neuroscience: data access, data storage, and data analysis, together with supporting activities for teaching and training.
The University of Oslo (UiO) was founded in 1811 as the first university in Norway. Today, UiO is the highest ranked university in the country, and Norway’s second largest university with 8 faculties, 10 Norwegian Centers of Excellence, 2 museums, 28 000 students, 7 000 employees and 8,4 billion NOK in total budget (2020). UiO’s EU research project portfolio is extensive with over 100 projects funded by Horizon 2020. UiO also ranks as 25th in Europe based on its number of ERC grant-holders.
The Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine (INM-7) at the Helmholtz Associations' Research Center Jülich, Germany, investigates the relationship between brain and behavior to characterize the organization of the human brain and its inter-individual variability. With an interdisciplinary and international team of scientists, it aims to foster a global community of neuroscientists and to contribute to a perpetual exchange of experience and knowledge through national and international collaborations.
WCNC is a regional alliance focused on developing and promoting neuroinformatics initiatives for scientists in Western Canada. The group was established by The University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University, with the intention to expand to other sites. WCNC works in tandem with other national partners in the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform to coordinate national efforts in support of INCF's mandate.
Neuromatch is a nonprofit with the mission to democratize science.
We envision a world where science is not dominated by a few well-funded labs in high income countries, but instead is made accessible to all. In our mind, everyone, regardless of their background or identity, has the right to access and share knowledge.
Our goal is to foster inclusive interactions for sharing, learning, mentorship, networking, and professional development in the sciences.
The Institute’s mission is deeply rooted in its long history of excellence in basic scientific research, but it must be periodically revised in response to dynamically changing environment of scientific research and its economical and societal implications. Therefore at the beginning of the 21st century, termed by some “the age of biology”, the Institute’s mission and development strategy must be reevaluated.
NeuroImaging Tools & Resources Collaboratory is an award-winning free web-based resource that offers comprehensive information on an ever expanding scope of neuroinformatics software and data. Since debuting in 2007, NITRC has helped the neuroscience community make further discoveries using software and data produced from research that used to end up lost or disregarded. NITRC also provides free access to data and enables pay-per-use cloud-based access to unlimited computing power, enabling worldwide scientific collaboration with minimal startup and cost.
ModECI (Model Exchange and Convergence Initiative) is a multi-investigator collaboration that aims to develop a standardized format for exchanging computational models across diverse software platforms and domains of scientific research and technology development.
