This grant, awarded by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) and the Department of Economy, Science and Innovation of the Flemish government (EWI), allows to expand the activities of the Belgian ELIXIR node. The current ELIXIR Belgium node services will be further developed to integrate them better into the ELIXIR network and allow compatibility with cloud based technologies. New projects of ELIXIR Belgium partners will be supported in order to increase the quality and visibility of these resources. Giving the increasing importance of cloud technology, initiatives will be taken to establish a plan for a Flemish cloud infrastructure. Trainings and workshops focussed on data and resources will be organised.
