A worldwide e-Infrastructure for NMR and structural biology

WeNMR at the 8th e-Infrastructure Concertation Meeting

 

The 8th e-Infrastructure Concertation Meeting is organised by the Commission Services with the support of the e-ScienceTalk project. It was held from 4 to 5 november 2010 at CERN's Globe venue in Geneva Switzerland.

This event brought together key players in the e-Infrastructures' community in the new Distributed Computing Infrastructures era, working towards a long term sustainable e-Infrastructure for scientific research in Europe. The ultimate aim is to develop a world-class resource as part of a strategy to achieve European leadership in e-Science.

The WeNMR project was presented by the project leader Prof. Dr. Alexandre M.J.J. Bonvin from Utrecht University in the Netherlands. A video of his presentation is shown below.
