December 13, 2019

On November 25 to 27, ELIXIR Luxembourg hosted the ELIXIR Compute Platform Face-to-Face meeting and the EOSC-Life Work Package 5/7 joint meeting on the Belval campus of the University of Luxembourg. During the meeting, around 30 participants gave updates on each task in the platform and discussed the extension and linking to other consortia and activities, such as the Federated Human Data Community and EU 1M Genome projects.

About the ELIXIR Compute Platform

The ELIXIR Compute Platform was established in 2015 to build and integrate cloud, compute, storage and access services for the life-science research community. The ELIXIR Compute Platform infrastructure will allow life scientists to easily access, share and analyse data from different sources across Europe. The objective is to combine all components of the ELIXIR Compute services into a seamless workflow. A researcher may use the ELIXIR Authorisation and Authentication services to securely create a scientific software analysis environment, and use the environment to access large biological data resources stored in a cloud.

About EOSC-Life

EOSC-Life brings together the 13 biological and medical research infrastructures to create an open, digital and collaborative space for biological and medical research. The project will publish ‘FAIR’ data and a catalogue of services provided by participating research infrastructures for the management, storage and reuse of data in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). This space will be accessible to European research communities. For more information, visit the website.
