BioFAIR: A Method Commons infrastructure for biological and biomedical sciences

BioFAIR seeks to connect life science data currently stored at different institutions and repositories. By bridging the gap between researchers, institutional data repositories, and existing data infrastructures, the project hopes to accelerate discoveries and innovation.

The concept of BioFAIR was developed by ELIXIR-UK. What started as a pilot study proposal in 2020 led to us working with Technopolis Group to carry out a full Feasibility Study in 2021, and in turn to a successful joint proposal for ‘BioFAIR; A data commons infrastructure for biological and biomedical sciences, to enhance the sharing, management and reuse of UKRI-supported data.’
