How to join INNI

Sites who are willing to join the INNI network as participant sites should send to the Steering Committee a scientific project proposal. This proposal should be aimed, using neuroimaging tools, to a better diagnosis, a better understanding of the natural evolution, or a better monitoring of treatment efficacy in MS. 

There are different modalities of participation to the INNI network, according to the characteristics of the requiring Institution (e.g., profit or no-profit) and to the willingness of sharing own data on the centralized database.

In particular, the following 4 modalities are foreseen:

  1. No profit data contributors = no profit Institutions asking for access to the INNI database, that are willing to share a relevant number of own data in the online database. The quality of data to be uploaded will be evaluated by the Steering Committee. No profit data contributors will receive a login allowing the upload of clinical and neuroimaging data in the online database, and allowing to read basic information of the content uploaded by the other participating sites.

    After receiving the project approval from the Steering Committee, no profit data contributors will have to sign the "Data User Agreement",upload their own data on the centralized database, to acknowledge "The INNI Group" and to include in the Author's list all INNI data contributors in any publication.

  2. No profit data users = no profit Institutions asking for access to the INNI database, that are not  willing to share any (or a limited number of) own data in the online database. According to the project proposal presented by the Users, the Steering Committee will decide whether: a) the Users can access to restricted data of the database, or b) results of the requested analysis will be sent to the User, without any access from the User to the database information. No profit data users will receive a login allowing to read only limited information of the content uploaded by the other participating sites.

     After receiving the project approval from the Steering Committee, no profit data users will have to sign the "Data User Agreement", to acknowledge "The INNI Group" and to include in the Author's list all INNI data contributors in any publication.

  3. Profit data contributors = profit Institutions/Companies asking for access to the INNI database, that are willing to share a relevant number of own data in the online database. The quality of data to be uploaded will be evaluated by the Steering Committee. The results of the requested analysis will be provided to the Institution/Company, without any access from the profit contributor to the complete dataset. 

    Profit data contributors will receive a login allowing the upload of clinical and neuroimaging data in the online database, and allowing to read only limited information of the content uploaded by the other participating sites.

    After receiving the project approval from the Steering Committee, profit data contributors will have to sign the "Data User Agreement", upload their own data on the centralized database, acknowledge "The INNI Group" and to include in the Author's list all INNI data contributors in any publication.

  4. Profit data users = profit Institutions/Companies asking for access to the INNI database, that are not willing to share a relevant number of own data in the online database. The results of the requested analysis will be provided to the Institution/Company upon payment, without any access from the profit user to the data  in the online database. 

    After receiving the project approval from the Steering Committee, profit data users will have to sign the "Data User Agreement", to acknowledge "The INNI Group" and to include in the Author's list all INNI data contributors in any publication.
