Home Project Objectives



  • Provide the Neuroscientific and Medical community with a dedicated Grid-based e-Infrastructure building upon the FP7 e-Infrastructure neuGRID and relying on the Pan-European backbone GEANT and the NRENs;
  • different competences and communities (neurological research, medical community, grid, networking) will be gathered, to implement the e-Infrastructure in an innovative way;
  • Deploy on this e-Infrastructure a secure and user-friendly service for the early diagnosis and research on dementia and other brain diseases, and exploiting large distributed reference databases of multimodal neuroimages;
  • Validate the e-Infrastructure and service through application to real patient cases (Alzheimer's Disease, neurodegenerative dementias) and validate the DECIDE model on cutting-edge diagnostic conditions (Schizophrenia);
  • Propose a long-term vision for the sustainability of the e-Infrastructure and its extension to new communities; ethical issues related to the management and exploitation of sensitive patient clinical data will be specifically addressed as well as the business model for the wider exploitation of the service;
  • Disseminate the results to promote the adoption of the DECIDE e-Infrastructure and service by the clinical community at large.
