This grant aims at collaboration between a number of research infrastructures in Flanders. The ESFRIs in scope are LifeWatch, DiSSCo and ICOS (Environment cluster), and ELIXIR, AnaEE, Euro-BioImaging, EMBRC and Instruct (Health and Food cluster). The project is led by VIB (ELIXIR) and VLIZ (LifeWatch).
Goal of the study is to survey the Flemish life-sciences research landscape to find synergies, broker collaborations and facilitate access to resources in the areas of data management and data analysis. This will allow to build expertise and knowledge across ESFRIs, expedite adoption of the VSC cloud resources by other scientific domains and allow ESFRIs to provide services to their communities within the context of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
