The Swiss government has committed to investing €35 million over the four-year period from 2013 to 2016. This monetary contribution is mainly provided through financial support to SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics – the Swiss ELIXIR Node.

Access to SIB’s bioinformatics core resources and many other high-quality services, as well as the benefit of its solid experience in bioinformatics training will be major assets in the launch and success of ELIXIR.
