As scientific interactions evolve with growing connectivity across the research ecosystem, networked governance structures and processes are increasingly vital to enable collaborative work spanning local cooperation to exchanges across multi-institutional and international levels. The Ethics and Governance Committee of the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) is pleased to announce the public release of the initial version of the CONP Ethics and Data Governance Framework, which can be accessed through: https://conp.ca/community/governance/ethics-governance/.
In addition to the Framework, drafts of the Publication and Commercialization Policies are also available for public reference and commentary. These policy resources aim to enable the transformation of neuroscience through ongoing advances in technology while ensuring broad trust in a distributed research ecosystem.
