TrainingSpace (TS) is an online hub that makes multimedia educational content from courses, conference lectures, and laboratory exercises from some of the world’s leading neuroscience institutes and societies more accessible to the global neuroscience community. TS provides users with study tracks for self-guided study, tutorials on tools and open science resources for neuroscience research, a Q&A forum, and access to publicly available datasets as well as links to literature references.
KnowledgeSpace (KS) is a community-based, data-driven encyclopedia for neuroscience that links brain research concepts to data, models, and the literature that support them. KS is a framework that combines general descriptions of neuroscience concepts found in wikipedia with more detailed content from NeuroLex. It then integrates the content from those two sources with the latest neuroscience citations found in PubMed and data found in some of the world’s leading neuroscience repositories.
Neurostars(NS) is a question and answering site that serves the INCF network as a forum for knowledge exchange between national nodes; as a point of interaction between neuroscientists, software developers, and infrastructure providers; and as an integral resource in the network’s training and mentoring initiatives.
Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development. Since 2011, the INCF network has served as a mentoring organization that pairs students with developers to work on 3-month programming projects.
Google Season of Docs is a global program that brings the open source and technical writer communities together. Since 2019, the INCF network has served as a mentoring organization that pairs technical writers with developers of open source software to work on 3-month technical writing projects.
The purpose of Brainhack is to bridge the data science and neuroscience research communities to advance the progress of brain science research. Brainhack is a unique conference that convenes researchers from across the globe and myriad disciplines to work together on innovative projects related to neuroscience.
