ELIXIR Programme for 2024-2028 | Consultation event on international engagement

Tue 30 November 2021, 14:00


This 2 hour online event aims to provide ELIXIR Nodes with an opportunity to influence international engagement as part of the upcoming ELIXIR Programme for 2024-2028. The event’s outputs will also strongly influence the 2022 update of ELIXIR’s International Strategy as part of ELIXIR-CONVERGE Task 4.3.


By ‘international’ we mean:

During the event, we will not dive into the details of who is doing what - rather, this will be a high-level consultation on the value of current efforts and mechanisms for international engagement, considering both international organisations and initiatives, as well as priority regions and countries. Then and looking to the future, we want your feedback on where our efforts should be focused and why (i.e. benefits to ELIXIR), and on possible mechanisms and resources to support our collective ambition.

Who is it for?

Anyone part of ELIXIR and who has an interest in international engagement in the context of ELIXIR’s work (and see ‘Scope’ above), whether or not they are involved in the ELIXIR-CONVERGE project. Joining instructions will be sent upon registration (these will be moderated so as to ensure that all attendees are part of ELIXIR).
