IBI: A Global Partnership to Decode the Brain

Posted by Peter Rudin on 28. February 2020 in News

First envisioned through a series of discussions on the “grand challenges” in neuroscience, the International Brain Initiative (IBI) has now been established to coordinate efforts across existing and emerging national and regional brain initiatives.

Next to brain-health issues, the IBI seeks to promote understanding the human brain and its massive computational and information storage capacities with the goal of unlocking the mechanisms underlying cognition, emotion, and creativity.

The IBI provides a platform for exploring new models of international collaboration between scientists, private and public funding bodies, industry partners, and government-related agencies.
