ELIXIR-LU is the Luxembourg Node of the European infrastructure for life science information
Luxembourg’s role in ELIXIR is to provide a European data hub for clinical and molecular data to enable the wide use of existing data for research on diseases. At the same time, the goal is to realise through the ELIXIR Node a national platform for translational biomedical data that offers electronic data capture, hosting and computing of clinical and molecular data.

During the event, members from the ELIXIR Hub and ELIXIR-LU will present the European infrastructure, the Luxembourg Node and its objectives, as well as ongoing projects. Guest speakers from ministries, research institutions, industry and patients’ association will address, amongst other topics, challenges associated with translational medicine data, the new data protection legislation and perspectives of the industry and the patients on sharing biomedical data. The event will close with a reception, offering ample time for networking and discussion.

The detailed programme is available on the ELIXIR-LU website.

Participation is free of charge but registration is mandatory.
If you wish to participate, please send an email to lucie.debroux@uni.lu before August 31.
