Research Infrastructures are decisive for Europe’s capacity to deliver scientific breakthroughs and innovations. The scope of ELIXIR CZ’s activities is of international importance, and goes far beyond the national research environment.  Thus, the infrastructure is closely aligned with the intergovernmental organization, the European Research Infrastructure for Life Science Data (ELIXIR), operating under the umbrella of the European Bioinformatics Institute of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL-EBI).

ELIXIR CZ is led by the Head of Infrastructure who is responsible for the successful implementation of the scientific program, jointly with the ELIXIR CZ Board, the main decision-making authority. The executive body of the consortium is called the Head of Nodes Committee, in which all partner institutions are represented by their delegates. ELIXIR CZ also benefits from the support of a supervisory body, the ELIXIR CZ Scientific Advisory Board, composed of independent renowned scientists who contribute to the achievement of ELIXIR CZ’s objectives and long-term visions.
