Building and promoting Excellence in Life Sciences in Europe

IT

The IT Working group was formed in November 2013 to adress a variety of topics linked to data storage, user support and IT development. 

It has established the following action plan:

  1. Define storage best practices (policies, architecture, cost containment, life cycle management, pressure and volume with vendors for better prices)

  2. Define best practices for computational support (shared computational resources with national or universities, code optimization)

  3. Each institute provides a high level list of applications supported to facilitate knowledge exchange.

  4. Establish a list of active and planned projects in order to discover synergies.

  5. Establish IT collaborations in areas of common interest and look into defining overall best practices.
