INCF would like to invite you to the INCF Brain Summit: Towards the alignment of the large-scale brain initiatives in support of clinical data which will be held at Nobel Forum in Stockholm in late April.

The first half of the first meeting day, April 24, is open to the Swedish neuroscience and neuroinformatics communities.

The program will be centered around presenting the objectives and main tools developed by the major brain initiatives, with the aim to showcase what is means to be FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable), why it is important, and how the tools and services being developed by the large-scale initiatives can facilitate more open and reproducible neuroscience.


Registration is free but mandatory, and places are limited - please register early. Last registration date is Tuesday April 17: Registration for Brain Summit 2018
