A user-driven data sharing and data management infrastructure for neuroscience

 

The EU Human Brain Project has established a large-scale data sharing and data management infrastructure, providing the backbone for data distribution, sharing and searching, through the publicly accessible HBP Knowledge Graph Search.The Knowledge Graph is fed with metadata curated by the HBP data and models curation team, through a 3-tier process. HBP employs community-governed data schemas allowing transparent extension beyond HBP, as well as open access reference atlases for organizing data based on spatial location in the brain. Curation and storage resources are allocated also to Partnering Projects and external projects.
