On Sept 14-15 2015 ELIXIR Slovenia hosted the kickoff meeting of the Training Platform of ELIXIR-EXCELERATE, directly followed by the first EXCELERATE Training workshop (15-17 September 2015), jointly organised by ELIXIR and GOBLET. ELIXIR-NL co-leads the ELIXIR Training platform.
ELIXIR’s training strategy will upskill researchers to more effectively exploit the data, tools, standards and compute services provided by ELIXIR, thereby facilitating access to Europe’s bioinformatics resources. This will be done by building on the available training expertise in all the ELIXIR nodes. Planned deliverables of the Training Platform are a.o. training of researchers, developers, infra-structure operators, and trainers; the establishment of a training platform; and the development of standards, metrics, and guidelines related to bioinformatics training.
The EXCELERATE Training workshop effectively kick started the e-learning subtask of the ELIXIR Training Programme. ELIXIR-NL Training also participates in this e-learning subtask.
Please contact Celia van Gelder (Training Coordinator of ELIXIR-NL and co-lead of the ELXIRTraining Platform) if you want more information about ELIXIR-NL Training activities or if you want to participate in ELIXIR-NL Training.
