The EBRAINS Norwegian Node is currently based at the University of Oslo and will be formally established in 2024, with additional partner institutions included.
The Node builds on expertise and analytic workflows established through the EU Human Brain Project (2012-2023) and the Norwegian Neuroinformatics Node of the INCF (operative since 2006).
The Node will offer on-site guidance, tutorials and training to support researchers in:
- Sharing experimental neuroscience data from human subjects and animal models
- Using and adapting the EBRAINS metadata model
- Developing formalized Data Management Plans
- Analysing data using EBRAINS tools and services
The Node supports open sharing and use of neuroscience data. Its aim will be to aid neuroscientists in managing, sharing, (re)using, and analysing research data efficiently and in accordance with the FAIR principles, making data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable.
