The Geneva International Brain Initiative (IBI) Meeting on July 5 served as an opportunity to discuss key topics and continue the development of the IBI and its Working Groups. This followed the achievements of the May 2018 Korea International Brain Initiative (IBI) Summit, which include the drafting of the Vision and Aims of the IBI and discussion of existing and emerging working groups, including a global inventory of brain projects, neuroethics, data sharing & standards, tool & technology dissemination, training & education, communication & outreach, and the IBI Coordinating Body framework.
