Collaborations


Collaborations are an integral part of our goals to provide support and impact within the wider community. In addition to the ongoing efforts of each of the partners, the CoE has formalized several strategic and collaborative partnerships through Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs).

How to become a partner

As a first step, we recommend that you get in contact with BioExcel personnel whose work is most closely related to your area of research. After discussion of your interest, please fill out together with your contact person the short proposal for partnership.

The proposal will be reviewed by the executive board and we will follow-up with the next steps.

Established partnerships

   The Open PHACTS Foundation is a registered charity dedicated to sustaining and developing the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform, with an interest in data standards, interoperability and public understanding of drug discovery science. It is part of a large community of researchers and developers from industry, academia and small businesses.

The platform provides access and query of publicly-available pharmacological linked data in a single integrated, open infrastructure. One of the BioExcel pilot use cases is harnessing the Open PHACTS platform as a source of pharmacological data.

ELIXIR unites Europe’s leading life science organisations in managing and safeguarding the increasing volume of data being generated by publicly funded research. It coordinates, integrates and sustains bioinformatics resources across its member states and enables users in academia and industry to access services that are vital for their research.

The collaboration framework between Elixir and BioExcel includes work on the http://bio.tools database, adoption of API libraries and workflow specifications, joint efforts towards adoption and performance evaluation of the common workflow language (CWL) in selected workflows, as well as joint webinar series.
