2016-01-29 Turkey: Partners Sought to Start a Neuroscience Research Community


Partners Sought to Start a Neuroscience Research Community 

Description of the project offered: 
A university from Istanbul is looking for partners to contribute to the "ISIN-N (International Science and Information Network for Neuroscience)" project, which will be proposed to the H2020 INFRAIA-02-2017 call. Universities & Research Institutes in the field of neuroscience, hospitals and public bodies who wish to take part in the network are sought, as well as Computer Engineering departments or IT companies to provide the technical structure. An experienced coordinator is also welcome.Restrictions on the flow of information and experience due to the lack of efficient physical conditions as well as obstacles for research collaboration have led to emergence of new online networks for better mobilization. In order to overcome these barriers in the neuroscience community, ISIN-N (International Science and Information Network for Neuroscience) is proposed. The most important difference of ISIN-N from other platforms is that rather than focusing on only a specific disease, it aims to coordinate the scientific groups/experts who are experienced in more than one specific subject such as Autism Spectrum Disorders, Schizophrenia, Alzheimer's Disease, Bipolar Disorder, Depression, ADHD and substance dependence in order to share experience and knowledge as well as provide the opportunity to design/develop new projects on the platform. 

ISIN-N will allow researchers to collaborate on a broad multidisciplinary approach via specialized room networks, and facilitate the use of individual resources and infrastructure of the network members within (and on a medium term, without) the network. The network will also feature tools such as ISIN-Npedia and ISIN-N Science Gateway for the learning community.

The consortium currently includes partners from Turkey, Bulgaria, Belgium, UK, Bosnia-Herzegova

The deadline for the EoIs is 22.02.2016.
The deadline for the call is 29.03.2016.
