Other working group members

The ELIXIR-UK training working group was launched in October 2020 with the aim of supporting training in ELIXIR-UK organisations.

Currently, members of this working group are actively involved in the UKRI funded Innovation Scholars project FAIR Data Stewardship Training 

To start with, this group will focus on gathering information on training activities and materials around: 

  • High Performance Computing (HPC) 
  • Cloud Computing
  • Galaxy
  • Data Management
  • Human Data Infrastructure
  • FAIRsharing
  • TeSS

It will also actively search for funding opportunities and promote diversity and inclusivity of training activities, in particular ensuring that all UK membership organisations have training support.

The group will have regular meetings which focus around performing/appraising pieces of training work.

The current audience, although not exclusively, will be the Life Science researcher, and the output from the group should be useful for early career researchers. This will broaden as the group grows into supporting participants engaged in infrastructure and tool development.

If you wish to be involved in the group and be invited to the regular meetings, please sign up to the mailing list. Your request will be processed and if you are part of an ELIXIR-UK member organisation you will be added to the group.
