Commissioned Services

ELIXIR's Commissioned Services are technical projects that guide future service development, drive standards adoption and connect ELIXIR Nodes (see Who we are).

They are funded through the budget of the ELIXIR Hub and form part of our ongoing activities in a particular Platform or Community. They are proposed by Platforms, agreed with the ELIXIR Heads of Nodes committee and approved by the ELIXIR Board.

If you want to publish work related to these projects, see How to publish ELIXIR-related work and How to acknowledge ELIXIR funding and support.
