A central goal of The BRAIN Initiative® is to ensure that the expertise required to use the tools developed from this landmark program are shared with the scientific community (see BRAIN 2025: A Scientific Vision). The program strives to increase training in cutting edge research approaches and techniques as well as quantitative neuroscience by offering early career training opportunities to ensure the next generation of researchers has the necessary skills to lead new scientific breakthroughs, as well as providing cross-disciplinary career development opportunities to expand technical acumen.
