The ABCD-J Project

The ABCD-J research community project is a collaboration between five research institutions in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia: University Clinic RWTH Aachen, University Clinic Bonn, University Clinic Köln, University Clinic Düsseldorf and Research Centre Jülich. The overarching goal of ABCD-J is to elevate existing technical solutions for research practice adoption. From the social perspective, the ABCD-J project aims to promote and facilitate collaboration between multiple research centres, while from the technical perspective the project will accelerate research through homogenization of workflows and processes, with particular emphasis on digital biomarker development.
