After a comprehensive internal and external evaluation process, PLAZA becomes an ELIXIR Recommended Interoperability Resource (RIR). Together with three other resources (BioImage Informatics Index, FAIRtracks and OmicsDI), PLAZA has now joined the list alongside the existing ten.

Recommended Interoperability Resources are ELIXIR services considered to be vital to enable the interoperability of databases and metadata. These resources include registries, tools and standards to ensure data is Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable (FAIR).

All ELIXIR RIRs are open to anyone free of charge and research funding agencies often reference the set as an instrument for researchers to fulfil their data management obligations.
