ELIXIR-LU and LCSB contribute to the development of a European Health Data Space
HealthyCloud Advances in health and biomedical sciences require that health research is performed timely, efficiently and oriented to high-quality results. To meet this need and to maximise the impact of health research, adopting best practices in health data management is essential. One of the priorities of the European Commission 2019-2025 is the...
ELIXIR-LU first EKES webinar with PetaGene
In November, ELIXIR-LU and PetaGene shared the first EKES (ELIXIR Knowledge Exchange Scheme) pilot outcome — a webinar on genomic data privacy. This workshop was the basis for future collaboration between Petagene and ELIXIR Luxembourg, with a scope to expand to other ELIXIR Nodes. The webinar focused on the impact of regulations such as...
PerMedCoE: HPC/Exascale Centre of Excellence in Personalised Medicine
Coordinated by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) and funded by the European Commission, this recently launched HPC centre of excellence will optimise codes for cell-level simulations in HPC/Exascale and bridge the gap between organ and molecular simulations, thus contributing to the European Personalised Medicine Roadmap. The next generation of Exascale supercomputers will...
ELIXIR-LU participates in the new “Beyond One Million Genomes” project
A new ELIXIR-coordinated European project has been recently launched. Called “Beyond One Million Genomes” (B1MG) and funded by Horizon 2020, it aims to support the implementation of the 1+ Million Genomes initiative. This initiative is a declaration of cooperation “towards access to at least 1 million sequenced genomes in the EU by...
The ELIXIR FAIR Training working group publishes a paper in PLoS Computational Biology — ‘10 Simple Rules for Making training materials FAIR.’
The collaborative effort, which started at the ELIXIR BioHackathon Europe 2018, has involved a multitude of experts from across ELIXIR. A working group on FAIR training picked up the work from the BioHackathon to build a set of 10 simple rules that could help develop and share FAIR training resources. Their goal:...
ELIXIR facilitates development of COVID-19 Disease Map
ELIXIR Nodes contribute to the development of a knowledgebase of SARS-CoV-2 virus host-pathogen interactions. Announced last week in Scientific data, the COVID-19 Disease Map is an international effort to organise the molecular processes underlying the virus-host interactions in COVID-19. Based on the rapidly growing body of scientific literature and curated by domain...
ELIXIR-CONVERGE — a new project to streamline data management practices
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...
