ELIXIR-CONVERGE — a new project to streamline data management practices
February 07, 2020

After the completion of the successful ELIXIR-EXCELERATE project, which provided ELIXIR with solid foundations, ELIXIR kicks off a new project to support the provision of data management across Europe.

ELIXIR-CONVERGE, a €5 million three-year H2020 project, will bring together experts from all 23 ELIXIR Nodes, representing 29 research institutes and 22 countries across Europe to work collaboratively on some of the major challenges in data access, provisioning and distribution. The development of a data management toolkit will sit at the core of the project, providing researchers with a strategy to manage their data to international standards.

Within this project, the ELIXIR Luxembourg Node is involved in building the life-science data management expert network, as well as training and capacity building. ELIXIR-LU is also in charge of defining best practise and developing training materials in common data management toolkit.
