ELIXIR is an inter-governmental organisation which builds on existing data resources and services within Europe. It follows a Hub and Nodes model, with a single Hub located alongside EMBL-EBI in Hinxton, Cambridge, UK and a growing number of Nodes located at centres of excellence throughout Europe.

Governments and ministries of countries are members of the ELIXIR consortium, and the scientific community in each member country develops their national Node.


ELIXIR CZ is a distributed infrastructure which builds on existing data resources and services of the consortium members. These centres of excellence throughout Czech Republic form the ELIXIR CZ national Node and jointly develop the infrastructure.
