White paper on Bioinformatics in Austria finished; new web portal; next steps

Dear colleagues,

best wishes for a happy and successful new year!

Thanks for your final input for the white paper. It is now finished and has been published via the new web portal of our platform:

http://bioinformatik.at

The white paper will now be sent out to the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy, to the rectors of all universities and the directors of all relevant research institutions. Please also promote it from your side. Our joint strategy will be already become important for the upcoming HRSM infrastructure call of the Ministry in 2016.

The most important next step for all of us will be the foundation of a formal, legal entity for our platform. We will keep you informed about this process in further newsletters from this website, but we promise to not spam you ;)

best regards

Thomas Rattei, CUBE, University of Vienna
