Slide title: Grand Challenges in Neuroscience & Neuroinformatics

Slide words:

  • 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.
