Abstract


EMBnet moving forward: 2010 & beyond!

Ruvo di Puglia, June 18th, 2010

 

More than 20 years after its inception as an organisation for disseminating data, knowledge and services to support molecular biology/biotechnology research across Europe, EMBnet has arrived at a cross-roads. Since 1988, its membership has expanded outside Europe, and the nature of many of the needs it was created to support has changed. Against this background, major (government-supported) initiatives have begun to emerge to try to satisfy the modern European data infrastructure need. The ‘EMBnet moving forward’ workshop was an opportunity to review the current context and how EMBnet should embrace the future, to the benefit of its global membership. The following pages summarise the workshop discussions and conclusions.
