ELIXIR was invited to apply to a dedicated call within Horizon 2020 following the ESFRI and European Council decision in 2014 to categorize ELIXIR as one of Europe’s three priority new Research Infrastructures. ELIXIR-EXCELERATE represents ELIXIR’s submission to this Call.

ELIXIR has been awarded €19 million from the EU to accelerate the implementation of Europe’s life-science data infrastructure over the next four years. From September 2015, ‘ELIXIR-EXCELERATE’ facilitates the integration of Europe’s bioinformatics resources, supporting all sectors of life-science R&D. It delivers excellence to ELIXIR’s users by fast-tracking the development and deployment of essential data services.

EXCLERATE funding helps ELIXIR coordinate and extend national and international data resources to ensure the delivery of world-leading life-science data services. It supports a pan-European training programme, anchored in national infrastructures, to increase bioinformatics capacity and competency. It also provides efficiencies in management and operation throughout the infrastructure, which is distributed amongst 17 countries. More information on ELIXIR EXCELERATE website.
