Elixir, A sustainable infrastructure for interoperability of public biological and biomedical data resources

biological data

The University of Milano-Bicocca participates, with different levels of involvement, in multiple ESFRI Research Infrastructures. In particular, the University is at the forefront of ESFRI RIs providing services in the domains of Environment, Health & Food, Physical sciences & Engineering, Social & Cultural Innovation.

Research Infrastructures (RIs) represent one of the sub-pillars of the Excellent science pillar of the European Research Framework Programmes (H2020, Horizon Europe), together with ERC and MSCA (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions) and are therefore one of the possible sources of funding for your research activity.

Participating in INFRA calls is extremely challenging but many of the existing RIs, in particular the ESFRI ones (European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures), receive funds to provide services to the scientific communities, either free of charge or to cover expenses (cost-recovery). In addition to these scientific services, which have been validated and are provided with quality management, the RIs provide free specialist training opportunities, and the possibility to cultivate different research opportunities through an extensive network of contacts.

The webinar series goes to the core of the matter with the first presentation of one of the ESFRI RIs present at the University,

ELIXIR: A SUSTAINABLE INFRASTRUCTURE FOR INTEROPERABILITY OF PUBLIC BIOLOGICAL AND BIOMEDICAL DATA RESOURCES - speaker: Prof Giancarlo Mauri
