The Netherlands is one of the participants in the ELIXIR ESFRI. ELIXIR is subtitled “Data For Life”, both referring to the fact that ELIXIR occupies itself with data from the Life Sciences, as well as the fact that it is concerned with the life time of data.
In ELIXIR, each country has identified local resources and efforts that it promises to make available to the other members of the network.
For the Dutch node, the themes are:
- Data Interoperability (together with especially the UK node),
- Training and Education (with a.o. UK, Czech Republic and Finland)
- Infrastructure (mainly with Finland).
