ELIXIR Europe conference: Core Resources for a Data Economy
ELIXIR Core Data Resources are a set of data resources that are of fundamental importance to the broad life science community and the long-term preservation of biological data. Their impact is becoming increasingly apparent as greater volumes of complex data are being generated from national and EC-funded research projects. One of the core missions of ELIXIR is to provide stable and sustainable access to these resources.
The high-level conference will address several aspects of these topics, from the perspective of funders, infrastructure operators and users across industry and academia. The event will include an outline of the process that has been established to define the first set of ELIXIR Core Data Resources and panel discussions on the subjects of impact and sustainability. Representatives of the European Commission will give keynote talks on 'Building the European Data Economy' and 'Research Infrastructures for Open Science'.
