|On February 11, 2017, the BRAIN Alliance held its first Annual General Meeting. Representatives from each subproject research team presented an overview of the progress accomplished since the project’s launch. These talks provided our students with the opportunity to practice their presentation skills and gain public speaking experience. Additionally, our HQPs were introduced to other BRAIN colleagues’ research; ergo, similarities between projects were exposed, fostering the sharing of knowledge and potential collaborative efforts.
The BRAIN Alliance AGM also featured two guest speakers: Angela Zeno (Manager, Research Accounting, York University) and Elissa Strome (Executive Director, SOSCIP). Angela provided information on the BRAIN funding structure, the role of Research Accounting, and information regarding ORF in-kind and labour reporting requirements. Elissa Strome provided an overview of SOSCIP (Southern Ontario Smart Computing Innovation Platform), its infrastructure and funding opportunities.
The BRAIN Alliance relies on support from the Ontario Research Fund and resources from industrial and institutional partners. Additional support is provided by numerous NSERC and OCE grants.
