Standards and Best Practices organisation for open and FAIR neuroscience
A collaborative network for open, FAIR, and citable neuroscience
The mission of INCF is to promote the uptake of FAIR data management practices in neuroscience through the development of standards and best practices that support open, FAIR, and citable neuroscience. INCF also provides training on how standards and best practices facilitate reproducibility and enable the sharing of data and code.
INCF serves as a standards organization dedicated to open and FAIR neuroscience by vetting, endorsing, and promoting the use of community standards and best practices.
In our Working Groups, users and developers work collaboratively to develop community standards and best practices and implement them in tools, services, and infrastructure.
We provide solutions and guidance to help catalyze collaborations, build team capacity, and standardization efforts around neuroscience projects and tools.
We provide educational courses and forums on FAIR data management methods & supporting tools in neuroscience through online and in-person courses and workshops.
We develop and maintain curated portfolios for standards, software tools, and infrastructure to help you implement FAIR in your neuroscience research.
Our network has developed standards, tools, and infrastructures that enable data sharing, reuse, and reproducibility which have gained large-scale community adoption.
