Highlights from ELIXIR Norway All Hands 2019

AllHandsOslo2019Our annual "All Hands" meeting took place during four consecutive days in Oslo, 22-25 October, this year with a strong flavour of data management, thanks to our two new grants BioMedData and Converge!

The meeting started with a satellite workshop on workflow development and data management, before "All Hands" were gathered to present and discuss current news, updates and challenges. The program included talks on the ELIXIR scientific programme 2019-23, future NeLS-Galaxy models, systems biology, MetaKube, Ensembl, federated EGA and data management, in addition to a session addressing models for sustainable future operation of ELIXIR Norway.

After the All Hands, a more narrow delegation met with our scientific advisory committee and our newly engaged stakeholder panel, representing some of our different user groups, for excellent input, comments and advice, before the meeting was closed with an ELixir Norway board meeting on Friday afternoon. A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed with talks, questions, comments and input! See you all next year.
