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 knowledge exchange and a committment to our progress to catalyze and advance neuroscience research globally. Working group deliverables are captured on their pages linked below and in IBI publications.
There are currently three established working groups: Inventory of Brain Projects, Global Neuroethics, and Data Standards and Sharing. There are two additional planned working groups: Tools and Technology Dissemination and Training and Education. Finally, Communications and Outreach group strategizes, plans, and executes networking events and materials for distribution, to maintain the connection between the IBI and the larger neuroscience community.
