ELIXIR Hub

EMBL-EBI South Building
The ELIXIR Hub is in the South Building, Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge

ELIXIR is organised using a 'Hub and Nodes' model, where the Hub's role is to coordinate the work done by the Nodes (see Who we are). The ELIXIR Hub:

  • accommodates executive management and administrative staff
  • has responsibility for developing and delivering ELIXIR's scientific strategy (see ELIXIR Programme) and managing Implementation Studies carried out by Nodes
  • coordinates the services run from the ELIXIR Nodes
  • coordinates and supports ELIXIR's governance bodies and technical committees
  • works with other biomedical science infrastructures to help address the challenges of Big Data together (see Why ELIXIR is needed)
  • leads ELIXIR's communications and external relations activities, including support to industry
  • supports the institutions within the Nodes
  • collaborates with national and European funders and policy-makers. 

The ELIXIR Hub is at the Wellcome Genome Campus in Hinxton, Cambridge. It is based next to EMBL-EBI, in a new building officially opened in autumn 2013 (see the news story). The building was funded by the UK government through its commitment as host country.
