In order to support Europe's industry and in particular its Small to Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs), ELIXIR's Innovation and SME programme is a series of specialised events for companies hosted by ELIXIR Nodes. The events provide companies with the opportunity of learning more about the emerging ELIXIR services and forge strong links with the local ELIXIR Nodes representatives running these services.
This forum (6 - 7 June) will feature presentations from ELIXIR resources such as EGA and funding opportunities in the Pre-Competitive space, such as Innovative Medicines Initiative. We will also have FlashTalks for organisations and companies to showcase their business models and aims.
This forum was aimed at the companies that use public bioinformatics resources in their business and would like to further streamline this process and use global resources. The event is jointly organised by ELIXIR Finland, ELIXIR Estonia and the ELIXIR Hub and is particularly relevant for large and small companies active in the genomics and health domains.
This Innovation and SME event was focussed on data-driven innovation in the marine and aquaculture industries. It allowed companies to see first-hand the public databases and tools that are run by ELIXIR Norway and other partners. It also included talks from innovative companies that are already using big-data in their businesses.
