Implementation Studies

We run short technical projects to inform future service development, drive standards adoption and connect our 21 Nodes.

Implementation Studies are funded through the budget of the ELIXIR Hub and form part of our ongoing activities in a particular Platform or Use Case. They are proposed by Platforms, agreed with the ELIXIR Heads of Nodes committee and approved by the ELIXIR Board.

See our portfolio of Implementation Studies below.
