About:Computational modelling and simulation techniques have long since become crucial tools for Life Science researchers. Powerful and sophisticated software packages are critically important for fundamental and applied research, including industrial development, in particular in the areas of drug design, biotechnology, food and chemical industries. At the same time, compared with some other disciplines, data and computing e-Infrastructure is under-utilized in the Life Sciences, and many advanced techniques are not routinely applied owing to limited experience.
Thus, our mission is to enable scientists to fully exploit the power of data and computing e-infrastructure by providing support to non-experts and advanced users; improving the performance and functionality of key applications; and developing user-friendly computational workflows.

Acrosslimits’ Role: As leaders of the Business Development and Exploitation workpackage, AcrossLimits will be looking at different ways of making the results coming out of the project sustainable as well as where possible, seeking and developing commercial routes.
