BRAIN Initiative: Standards to Define Experiments Related to the BRAIN Initiative (R24)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications to develop standards that describe experimental protocols that are being conducted as part of the BRAIN Initiative.  It is expected that applications will solicit community input at all stages of the process.  It is recommended that the first step of standard development will involve sharing data between different key groups in the experimental community in order to ensure that the developing standard will cover the way that all of those groups are collecting data.  The developed standard is expected to be made widely available.
