The Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP)
The Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) aims to bring together many of the country’s leading scientists in basic and clinical neuroscience to form an interactive network of collaborations in brain research, interdisciplinary student training, international partnerships, clinical translation and open publishing. The platform will provide a unified interface to the research community and will propel Canadian neuroscience research into a new era of open neuroscience research with the sharing of both data and methods, the creation of large-scale databases, the development of standards for sharing, the facilitation of advanced analytic strategies, the open dissemination to the global community of both neuroscience data and methods, and the establishment of training programs for the next generation of computational neuroscience researchers. CONP aims to remove the technical barriers to practicing open science and improve the accessibility and reusability of neuroscience research to accelerate the pace of discovery.

Open your Lab Notebook
On Friday, December 14, a presentation on open lab notebooks was given by Rachel Harding and Mandeep Mann at the De Grandpré auditorium of the Montreal Neurological Institute. It was then followed by a demonstration on how to use Zenodo, an open science data-sharing platform.
Number of Partner Institutions
The CONP is composed of many institutions, both nationally and internationally. These universities, research labs, and private corporations share a similar vision of shaping the future of neuroscience.
