Funding Information:
Several solutions have been proposed to facilitate and reward collaborative science in FIT neuroimaging. Funding agencies have been major contributors in a top-down shift to prioritize funding for FIT neuroimaging research and core data processing resources, which has alleviated some of the factors impeding collaboration in this field. Over the past decade, several large, multisite, multimodal studies have been funded by the National Institutes of Health and the European Research Council, such as the Developing Human Connectome Project ( http://www.developingconnectome.org/ ), the Baby Connectome Project ( https://babyconnectomeproject.org/ ), the FinnBrain Study ( https://sites.utu.fi/finnbrain/en ), and the HEALthy Brain and Child Development study ( https://heal.nih.gov/research/infants-and-children/healthy-brain ). Furthermore, private organizations such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation ( https://www.gatesfoundation.org/ ) and Wellcome Leap ( https://wellcomeleap.org/ ) have provided millions of dollars in funding for early-life health and development research. Such funding initiatives are critical for incentivizing and facilitating collaborative and open research in FIT populations whose data requires more resources to obtain relative to older children.
