Multicentre studies are of utmost importance to confirm hypotheses. The lack of established standards and the ensuing complexity of their data management often hamper their implementation. The Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) is an initiative for organizing and describing neuroimaging and electrophysiological data. Building on BIDS, we have developed two software programs: BIDS Manager and BIDS Uploader. The former has been designed to collect, organise and manage the data and the latter has been conceived to handle their transfer and anonymisation from the partner centres. These two programs aim at facilitating the implementation of multicentre study by providing a standardised framework.
