The International Brain Initiative established working groups to help deliver the aspirational goals. These groups include all member countries of the International Brain Initiative to ensure that nothing is being left behind in our progress to crack the brain’s code.
There are currently two established working groups: Global Inventory of Brain Projects and Global Neuroethics. There are three additional working groups in the scoping phase: Tools and Technology Dissemination, International Data Sharing and Standards, and Training and Education.
To examine and catalogue the world’s major brain initiatives systematically, by tracking funding sources, amounts, timelines, overall mission, specific deliverables, and points of collaboration.
To serve as an idea-incubator for scholarship, research and curriculum as well as for community building for neuroethics in the International Brain Initiative.
To share and disseminate tools and technology to globally accelerate discovery.
To implement mechanisms for data harmonization between existing global research efforts, international neuroscience-relevant societies, and neuroscience researchers.
To empower future generations of neuroscientists through innovative transdisciplinary training that embraces a global research perspective and the benefits of neuroscience for all.
