Supporting open-access services for the life sciences community

ELIXIR-UK services benefit from exposure to a wide range of potential users and collaborators across Europe and globally.

Although Node Service status does not confer additional funding, it indicates the value placed on the service by ELIXIR. Furthermore, those offering Node Services can apply for ELIXIR Europe funding through their projects called Implementation Studies and for UK Node funding for participation in ELIXIR.

The most significant benefit is the raised profile throughout ELIXIR.

How do services get selected?

  1. An annual, open and transparent process to conform to a set of criteria designed to ensure high service quality and match UK priorities as identified by its funders.
  2. Project commitments made to ELIXIR.
