Recommended Interoperability Resources

RIR logo

The ELIXIR Recommended Interoperability Resources (RIRs) are tools and registries that have been selected by a panel of external reviewers and are identified as resources that facilitate the FAIR-supporting activities in scientific research, such as:

  • Establishing connections between data (and other) resources
  • Acquiring and exposing metadata of data (and other) resources
  • Creating the infrastructure needed to build integratable data collections
  • Using interoperability resources to support delivery of FAIR principles

ELIXIR Recommended Interoperability Resources

Updated December 2023

The portfolio of ELIXIR Recommended Interoperability Resources will be regularly evaluated for quality assurance and quality control. Further resources will be included in future calls for RIR application as ELIXIR evolves, accommodating emerging technologies and changing scientific needs. Recommendations for use of RIRs should also be recognised as suggestions and not a mandate as we value emerging developments from our ELIXIR members based on upcoming ELIXIR use case requirements.
