ELIXIR is organised using a 'Hub and Nodes' model, where the Hub's role is to coordinate the work done by the Nodes (see Who we are).
The Hub's role
The ELIXIR Hub:
- accommodates executive management and administrative staff
- has responsibility for developing and delivering ELIXIR's scientific strategy (see ELIXIR Programme) and managing Commissioned Services carried out by Nodes
- coordinates the services run from the ELIXIR Nodes
- coordinates and supports ELIXIR's governance bodies and technical committees
- works with other biomedical science infrastructures to help address the challenges of Big Data together (see Why ELIXIR is needed)
- leads ELIXIR's communications and external relations activities, including support to industry
- supports the institutions within the Nodes
- collaborates with national and European funders and policy-makers.
The ELIXIR Hub is at the Wellcome Genome Campus in Hinxton, Cambridge. It is based next to EMBL-EBI, in a building opened in autumn 2013 (see the news story). The building was funded by the UK government through its commitment as host country.
