Testimonials (of companies attending previous ELIXIR Innovation and SME events)

With Intomics we derive value from integrating various public bioinformatics resources and providing commercial services on top. The ELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum (Copenhaguen, 2014) gave us the opportunity to learn more about these public resources and to interact directly with those running them so they understand our needs better. Annette Vibeke Uldall, Intomics

I made good connections, and expect to start several new translational bioinformatics projects as the result of the meeting. John Castle, Senior Director, Bioinformatics, 4-Antibody AG & Agenus

What is ELIXIR

ELIXIR is an intergovernmental organisation that brings together life-science resources from across Europe. These resources include databases, software tools, training materials, cloud storage and supercomputers.

The goal of ELIXIR is to coordinate these resources so that they form a single infrastructure. This infrastructure makes it easier for scientists to find and share data, exchange expertise, and agree on best practices.

ELIXIR includes 21 members and over 180 research organisations. It was founded in 2014, and is currently implementing its first five-year scientific programme.

ELIXIR supports open innovation and promotes the use of widely adopted standards. This reduces barriers between information sharing and helps facilitate cross-company research partnerships.
