INCF special interest event at FENS Forum

21st century global neuroscience collaboration - Sculpting a FAIR and Open Landscape

The emergence of a number of international collaboratives generating vast amounts of brain big data have generated a demand for data sharing that will require an unprecedented level of cooperation to openly share not only our data, but also our tools for making data FAIR, and analyzable. The significant obstacles posed by different data sharing restrictions due to different privacy regulations (like GDPR), differences in the platform usability due to the needs of original stakeholders, or different national ethical restrictions on data acquisition and use, create a confounding landscape for us to navigate. This event is designed to inform the community of the brain data-driven efforts in the international arena, and open the discussion as to how we can combine our resources to achieve greater international cooperation in openly sharing data, AI and best practices - to enable us all to move forward synergistically.
