Slide title: Grand Challenges in Neuroscience & Neuroinformatics
Inherent complexity and multi-scale nature of today's frontier science challenges.
Requirement for multi-disciplinary, multi-investigator, multi-institutional approach (often international).
High data intensity from simulations, digital instruments, sensor nets, observatories.
Increased value of data and demand for data curation & preservation of access.
Exploiting infrastructure sharing to achieve better stewardship of research funding.
Strategic need for engaging more students in high quality, authentic science and engineering education.
