Mariangela Lupo, member of the EPTRI coordination team at Consorzio per Valutazioni Biologiche e Farmacologiche (CVBF) and Fedele Bonifazi, President of the Gianni Benzi Foundation and leader of WP4, were invited to take part in the 4th Annual Conference of the ELIXIR Czech National Node that was held on 11-12th November in Kurdějov (Czech Republic).
The meeting was the occasion to present EPTRI and strengthen the synergy with ELIXIR, a Research Infrastructure (RI) aimed to bring together life science resources (i.e. databases, software tools, training materials, cloud storage) from across Europe and to enable scientists to find and share data, exchange expertise and best practices.
To harness efficiency in delivery of paediatric research activities and services, EPTRI plans to strengthen collaboration within the scientific paediatric community and other existing RIs. To this aim, EPTRI would like to establish a “Common service on data interoperability” to be delivered to “customers” as a collaboration of the two RIs, considering that one of EPTRI’s purposes is to facilitate sharing and re-use of data, while ELIXIR provides bioinformatics resources.
