Innovation and Industry

Industry is a major user of Europe’s key bioinformatics resources. Industrial users range from large multinational companies to micro-SMEs, covering fields such as pharma, biotech, food, agriculture and aquaculture.


The objectives of ELIXIR’s Industry Strategy are:

  • Facilitating collaborations between researchers in academia and industry, around mutually-beneficial cross-sectoral challenges
  • Increasing the use of ELIXIR’s infrastructure services and resources by industry to allow for open innovation
  • Demonstrating the impact of ELIXIR resources for open science, innovation in the life sciences and society at large
  • Ensuring ELIXIR Nodes are supported in engaging effectively with the private sector

Our activities are guided by input from the Industry Advisory Committee.
