Current Activities

The members of ELIXIR-UK are always working hard on a wide range of projects. ELIXIR-UK is a partner in many ELIXIR projects, and we also have UK specific work. Please take the time to browse the information below on our current activities, and learn more about the work that ELIXIR-UK is involved in.

ELIXIR-UK is currently running a feasibility study for a new virtual institute for life science data management and bioinformatics, BioFAIR. Our aim is to provide the support, training and infrastructure the community requires in order to continue producing world class research, and to promote open and transparent data management practices.

This page shows all the projects that ELIXIR-UK are involved with which fit under the area of computational workflows.

This page introduces all of the projects, services and resources in FAIR data management which ELIXIR-UK is involved in. 


ELIXIR-UK plays a significant role in the training landscape – not just at home in the UK, but across the whole of the European ELIXIR project. We co-lead on the ELIXIR training platform and support the development of training to address key skills gaps amongst UK scientists.
