A WORLDWIDE INFRASTRUCTURE FOR COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENTISTS
An FP7-funded Support Action (2009-2011)

Three e-infrastructures for computational neuroscience are presently active or under construction worldwide. In Europe, neuGRID aims to provide large sets of brain images paired with grid-based computationally intensive algorithms for studies of neurodegenerative diseases.
In Canada and the U.S., CBRAIN at McGill in Montreal and LONI - Laboratory of Neuro Imaging at UCLA offer computational resources and algorithm pipelines
Aim of outGRID is to ignite the process to lead the 3 e-infrastructures to converge into one unique worldwide facility.
outGRID organised a number of workshop to promote the exchange of technical information, direct the development of the infrastructures towards interoperability. In addition, to promote specific international calls aiming to achieve full interoperability, a First Workshop with Funding Bodies was held in collaboration with FP7 neuGRID on January 26th 2011 at the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium, and a Second Workshop with Funding Bodies was hosted by the International Telecommunication Union, UN agency, in Geneva on February 20th-21st 2012.
On July 31st 2012 the outGRID project has reached its end.
