On October 1st 2015, the first meeting of the ELIXIR-EXCELERATE Interoperability platform was held in Amsterdam. About 50 people (including Technical WP6 partners for CORBEL ) attended in person, 7 remotely, representing 12 nodes.
A collection of lightning talks, best practice presentations and breakout sessions were the ingredients of an active day of contructive discussions on tasks and activities among the participants in EXCELERATE.
The interoperability platform will be delivered in four workstreams:
- Use Cases
- BYOD/Training Interface
- External initiatives
In EXCELERATE ELIXIR-NL is involved in:
- WP 4 ( E-infra),
- WP 5 (Interoperability),
- WP 7 (Use case: Integrating Genomic and Phenotypic Data for Crop and Forest Plants),
- WP 8 (Use case: ELIXIR infrastructure for Rare Disease research),
- WP 9 (Use case: Human data) and
- WP11 (Training).
ELIXIR-NL will lead the third work stream in WP5: BYOD/Training interface.
