On September 19 and 20 2018 NMC will organize for the first time the “Benelux” Metabolomics days in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. It is for the first time that researchers from Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxemburg meet, but of course this meeting will be very interesting and open to all other European researchers performing and applying metabolomics in their research. The entire meeting will be in English. It is our intention to organize annual Benelux meetings, in years that the global metabolomics conferences is not being held in Europe. More information will be available shortly.
Kick-off ELIXIR Metabolomics Implementation study
Recently funding for a European ELIXIR Metabolomics community was acquired, uniting researchers in the UK, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Spain, Greece, Italy, Switzerland, Estonia and the ELIXIR-hub. ELIXIR is a European research infrastructure, that brings together life science resources from across Europe, which include databases, software tools, training materials, cloud storage and supercomputers. The goal of the ELIXIR Metabolomics community is to work with experimental scientists and developers to provide the resources, analysis tools and infrastructure that will help metabolite identification. The community will also establish an infrastructure of services, standards and datasets to help researchers discover, annotate and analyse metabolomics data from around Europe. On September 18 (evening) and 19 (morning) the kick-off of this Implementation Study will take place, adjacent to the Benelux Metabolomics days.
