Cineca is joint research unit of ELIXIR-IT


ELIXIR is an European Research Infrastructure that brings together life sciences resources from across Europe. These resources include databases, software tools, best practices, training materials, cloud storage and supercomputers.

ELIXIR coordinates these resources so that they form a single infrastructure, which makes it easier for scientists from Academia, Research Institutions and commerce to find and share data, exchange expertise and agree on best practices.

ELIXIR adopts a “Hub and Nodes” organization model: The ELIXIR Hub (Wellcome Genome Campus, Cambridge, UK) operates as the headquarters that coordinates the activities across ELIXIR.

Each of the participating member states of ELIXIR establishes a national ‘Node’, which in turn is a network of organizations that work within a member state.

ELIXIR-IT is the Italian Node of ELIXIR; its mission is to drive the development of bioinformatics resources in Italy and integrate them into ELIXIR’s pan European service portfolio.

The ELIXIR Compute Platform infrastructure will allow life scientists to easily access, share and analyse data from different sources across Europe: the main objective is to combine all components of the ELIXIR Compute services into a seamless workflow through the ELIXIR Authorisation and Authentication infrastructure.

The ELIXIR-IT Compute Platform delivers services through the collaboration of its infrastructural partner institutes: CINECAINFN, ENEA, GARR and CRS4.
