About INCF incf logo

The International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF) was launched in 2005, following a proposal from the Global Science Forum of the OECD to establish an international collaborative informatics infrastructure for neuroscience, and currently has 16 member countries across North America, Europe and Asia. INCF establishes and operates scientific programs to develop standards for neuroscience data sharing, analysis, modeling and simulation while coordinating an informatics infrastructure designed to enable the integration of neuroscience knowledge worldwide and catalyze insights into brain function in health and disease.

About NeuroDevNet NeuroDevNet logo

NeuroDevNet, a Canadian Network of Centres of Excellence (NCE), is dedicated to helping children overcome neurodevelopmental disorders. Network investigators seek to understand the causes of neurological deficits, and to transfer this knowledge to health care professionals, policy makers, and communities of interest. NeuroDevNet works with its partners in academia, the community, not-for-profit sector, industry, and government, and across traditional disciplinary boundaries and sectors, to ensure generated knowledge is translated into tangible diagnostic, preventative, therapeutic, social, economic, and health benefits for all.
