Research Lab - Personal Acct vs Organization Acct

I would like to set up a GitHub account for my research project where my team can share code.

What’s the advantage of using an “Organization” account rather than an individual account? How much does it cost to have an Academic Research -Organization Account?

It seems that the individual account allow extensive collaboration already and is less expensive.
