The consortium

The META VCI MAP consortium is a growing network of researchers from major brain research centers worldwide. Currently we approximately 50 member groups and consortia.

Datasets available from members are listed in the Meta VCI Map data index. This data index is used to select cohorts with comparable study populations and cognitive outcomes that can be used in meta-analyses.

Please note that data will only be shared on a project-by-project basis. This enables each consortium member to opt-in or opt-out on sharing data for specific projects, which allows individual investigators to prioritize projects of their interest accordingly. Each project involves individual data sharing agreements between participating centers, defining data use and access for that particular project. This ensures that local requirements for privacy, ownership and traceability of the data are fulfilled.

If you are interested in setting up a collaborative project, please view the designated page for this.
