Bioinformatics and Information Retrieval Data Structures Analysis and Design (BIRDS)

Type: International Project Project

Duration: from 2016 Jan 01 to 2020 Dec 31

Financed by: European Commission

The overall goal of BIRDS is to establish a long term international network involving leading researchers in bioinformatics and information retrieval from four different continents, to strengthen the partnership though the exchange of knowledge and expertise, and to develop integrated approaches to improve current approaches in both fields. It will be implemented through staff exchanges, in addition to summer schools, workshops and conferences to facilitate knowledge sharing between members of partnership. We will also bring research results to market, thanks to cooperation with an innovative SME software development company based in Europe.
