"...To improve access to critical data, and to continue its policy of being a leader in open science, The Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital (The Neuro) of McGill University has joined The Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP), a new data sharing partnership that will break down the barriers to collaboration, facilitating the distribution of data across the Canadian neuroscience community and beyond.
The partnership was inaugurated today when Health Canada and Brain Canada announced a $10M grant, awarded through the Canada Brain Research Fund, to establish CONP. The grant was announced by David Lametti, Member of Parliament for LaSalle-Émard-Verdun and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, in the presence of Suzanne Fortier, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of McGill University, Dr. Guy Rouleau, Director of The Neuro, and Inez Jabalpurwala, President and CEO of Brain Canada...."
