The aim of this new strategic implementation study (SIS) is to build on the current progress made through the ongoing implementation study, enabling the adoption and deployment of protocols and services by the broader ELIXIR community at scale.
The first SIS Containers study (2019-2021) has successfully convened and established a growing ELIXIR wide consensus on high-level community-driven service needs and related standards including:
The ongoing study also engaged with 5 communities/use cases to ensure the standards being developed were able to be adopted by the different use cases and highlight potential bottlenecks and risks to adoption. Hence as stated, the aim of this new study is to build on the current progress and ensure adoption and deployment of these protocols and services by the broader ELIXIR community at scale and to establish plans for sustainability.
The work is divided across four work-packages:
The present study is participated in by thirteen ELIXIR Nodes: ELIXIR Belgium (Frederik Coppens, Ignacio Eguinoa, Bert Droesbeke), ELIXIR Switzerland, ELIXIR Czech, ELIXIR Germany, ELIXIR Denmark, EMBL-EBI, ELIXIR Spain, ELIXIR Italy, ELIXIR Finland, ELIXIR France, ELIXIR Greece, ELIXIR The Netherlands, and ELIXIR UK.
