Open PHACTS Foundation participates in Horizon 2020

On November 25, 2014, Posted by , In News, By ,, , With No Comments

The Open PHACTS Foundation will be participating in Big Data Europe’s Horizon 2020 project, which aims to integrate existing big data infrastructures into an extensible stack of semantically interoperable, large-scale, multi-lingual data assets.

Part of the Foundation’s role will involve running pilots on services combining data and functionalities from the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform with other project partners, such as the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. The Foundation will also act as a contact point with the life science R&D community, including industry members of the Foundation (currently GlaxoSmithKline, Janssen, Lilly and Roche), and organise workshops to identify requirements for data and component interoperability among the Open PHACTS API and Discovery Platform, and Big Data Europe’s stack and related extensions and plugins.
