The ELIXIR Data Management Coordinators group consists of one or two appointed representatives from each ELIXIR Node. The Data Management Coordinators are the main contact points for each Node regarding Data Management issues.
The Data Management Coordinators form the core of the ELIXIR Data Management Network. Its formation was a milestone in the ELIXIR-CONVERGE project (WP1), and its members help ensure the delivery of the expected outcomes of this project work package. To achieve this, the Data Management Coordinators will rely on members of the larger ELIXIR Data Management Network and resources in the different Nodes.
The Data Management Network interacts through a mailing list, as well as through regular monthly meetings that are used for sharing of best practices, and how Data Management support is done in different countries.
It is expected that the Data Management Coordinators will continue as a function of ELIXIR after the completion of ELIXIR-CONVERGE.
