How we work

ELIXIR-UK is involved in a wide variety of different projects, communities and collaborations, both in the UK and within ELIXIR. Find out more about the work we do below 

Communities work in a particular life science domain and give feedback on the Platform services.  Find out about the work ELIXIR-UK members do within ELIXIR wide communities and learn about how you can get involved.

These are UK wide networks of people working in data management and training. Learn more and get involved.

ELIXIR-UK is involved in a number of EU projects including FAIRplus and Galaxy Europe.

ELIXIR Focus Groups are informal groups with an interest in a particular topic. ELIXIR-UK members are active in many of the focus groups within ELIXIR.

The UK Node represents UK strengths in bioinformatics within ELIXIR and provides a route for UK bioinformatics resources to participate in ELIXIR. The Node’s activities and services span the ELIXIR Platforms for training, interoperability and standards, tools and data.

The five Platforms coordinate the services across ELIXIR. They work across all scientific domains and all the Nodes.

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.
