Apart from our academic partners, Belgian research institutes active in life-sciences are also important stakeholders in ELIXIR Belgium. Members of these organisations generate and use data, thereby facing similar data challenges. With the ELIXIR Belgium Interest Group, we aim to bring together members of research institutes in order to exchange views, share best practices and promote collaborations.
The first meeting of the ELIXIR Belgium Interest Group is planned for 18 June 2018 and aims at building the network and setting the scene. Activities on data-management & FAIR data, cloud applications, data trainings ... in ELIXIR Belgium will be presented. Representatives of the research institutes will have the opportunity to express their needs in bioinformatics and data-management and how ELIXIR Belgium can assist.
Research institutes invited for this Interest Group are ILVO, IMEC, ITM, de Duve Institute, SCK, VITO, VLIZ, VSC and Plantentuin Meise. This list is not exhaustive, please contact us if you are interested to join.
