The BRAIN Alliance (Big Data Research, Analytics, and Information Network Alliance) is an Ontario network of Universities, public and private institutions working together to conduct state-of-the-art translational research on large scale data sets. The network is made possible by investments from participating universities and public/private partners, as well as a 3.5 million dollar Ontario Research Fund – Research Excellence grant (ORF-RE).

The BRAIN Alliance is focused on big data research and knowledge mobilization.

Our goal is to connect the best Ontario academic researchers with private and public sector organizations to collaboratively narrow the research and innovation gap.

The BRAIN Alliance will prioritize training students and highly qualified personnel, as well as the commercialization of cutting-edge tools for translating Big Data into actionable discoveries.
