Dear all,

INCF* invites applications for seed funding of collaborative projects
related to brain research. The deadline for submission is no later
than *November
30, 2016*. Projects must be completed within 2017.

Seed funding grants should facilitate community work in collaborative brain
research, promote the use of neuroinformatics solutions, and accelerate
advances in understanding the brain and treating its illnesses.There are
two types of funding available, project funding and travel grants.

*Travel grants* will be used to support collaborative work. One of the
collaborators (traveller or host) must be based in one of the 17 INCF
network countries. The proposed travel should support one or more of the

   - exchange of information relevant to neuroinformatics between parties
   based in different countries
   - progression of work relevant to neuroinformatics requiring the
   participant to travel to another location, usually another country, for
   - participation in neuroinformatics training or education as a lecturer
   or participant (but not general attendance at scientific meetings)

*Project funding *supports projects that will deliver tools, data,
research, education, training or community development, for example:

   - driving forward delivery of a product that addresses a neuroscience
   use case
   - enable a project to develop to the stage of attracting larger-scale
   external funding, for example initial consortium meetings or pilot data
   - organisation and hosting of a scientific workshop
   - development of training or educational content

The funding could facilitate, for example: initial consortia formation for
the creation of a competitive funding proposal; work to demonstrate a proof
of concept; tool development or integration; hosting of a workshop to
explore and develop an area; or development of education and training
content. The leader of a funded proposal must be based in one of the 17
countries in the INCF network.

All participants of a funded proposal must commit to sharing all reports,
data, code, and training/education materials from the final project,
subject to any limitations imposed by any subsequent funder. Projects must
be completed within 2017.

*INCF is an international organization launched in 2005, following a
proposal from the Global Science Forum of the OECD to establish
international coordination and collaborative informatics infrastructure for
neuroscience. The INCF international network currently spans North America,
Europe, Australia and Asia. INCF fosters the global digital
interconnectivity of data, methods and people engaged in brain research to
catalyze insights into brain function in health and disease.
