How you can help
ELIXIR will contribute to European innovation by:
- Optimising access and exploitation of life-science data
- Ensuring longevity of the data, thereby protecting investments already made in research
- Enhancing the quality of European research by supporting national efforts to increase the competence and number of bioinformatics users through training and outreach
- Strengthening the global position and influence of Europe in life-science research in both in academia and industry.
As a funder or a policymaker, you can help ELIXIR to become a reality by:
- Supporting ELIXIR in your country
- Supporting the implementation of ELIXIR across relevant EU initiatives in health, environment, industry and research policy
- Ensuring that ELIXIR – and its role in meeting the Grand Challenges – is adequately taken into consideration in the implementation of the Europe 2020 strategy
- Encouraging the development of mechanisms for sustainable support for ELIXIR in the EC's new research funding programme, 'Horizon 2020'.
