Big Data Europe is a EU funded Horizon2020 project and will undertake the foundational work for enabling European companies to build innovative multilingual products and services based on semantically interoperable, large-scale, multi-lingual data assets and knowledge, available under a variety of licenses and business models.
The Open PHACTS Discovery Platform is bringing together pharmacological data resources in an integrated, interoperable infrastructure, and has been developed to reduce barriers to drug discovery in industry, academia and for small businesses.
The first round of pilots for the Big Data Europe project is about to enter the evaluation phase. This also holds for the Societal Challenge 1: Health. For this challenge the Open PHACTS foundation, Manchester University and the VU Amsterdam are working on the Open PHACTS docker and its integration with the Big Data Europe infrastructure.
This presentation will give you:
- a general overview of the infrastructure and the status of the generic components that are being developed
- an outline of the Societal Challenge and the rationale for the pilot
a look into the future pilot options
The intended audience are people acquainted with basic development tools like Docker and GitHub with an interest in Big Data and Drug Discovery.
