ELIXIR-CONVERGE is designed to deliver the major, complex and outstanding issues of building and harmonising national data management practices, access to human capital, impact assessments and national roadmap positioning. ELIXIR-CONVERGE will harmonise toolkits, operations and monitoring indicators. Specifically we aim to achieve this sustained national capacity for life science research data management by delivering results against four project objectives: Objective 1: Develop a sustainable and scalable operating model for transnational life-science data management support by leveraging national capabilities. Objective 2: Strengthen Europe’s data management capacity through a comprehensive training programme delivered throughout the European Research Area. Objective 3: Align national data management standards and services through a sustainable, scalable and cost-effective data management toolkit. Objective 4: Align national investments to drive local impact and global influence of ELIXIR.
