The sixth ELIXIR CZ annual conference.
After more than a year of meeting on Zoom, we are warmly inviting you to the ELIXIR CZ Annual Conference 2021 to get together and discuss progress in ELIXIR CZ in real life.
We would be delighted to have you at this conference sharing with us your research advancements in a scientific talk, or as a poster presentation. We would also love to hear your thoughts and opinion in time thoughtfully scheduled for discussions.
We believe that a face-to-face format of the conference is the ideal solution for bolstering connections. Nevertheless, the health of all participants is of utmost importance for us. The conference will be therefore held in line with actual epidemiologic restrictions put in place by respective Czech authorities. Please check our website regularly for updates.


The conference programme will reflect upon the past year’s development in ELIXIR CZ as well as in ELIXIR. More specifically, we will hear:
  • plenary lectures by prominent scientists and leaders of national ELIXIR Nodes,
  • an update from an ELIXIR Hub representative,
  • representatives of selected partner infrastructures about alignment with ELIXIR,
  • information about development in ELIXIR CZ services that are offered to its participants and the scientific community of the Czech Republic,
  • and, last but not least, 15 minute flash talks of research undertaken within the ELIXIR CZ community.
