    Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/content_providers/barcelona-supercomputing-center-bsc BSC is at the service of the international scientific communιty and of industry that requires HPC resources. Our multidisciplinary research team and our computational facilities –including MareNostrum– make BSC an international centre of excellence in e-Science. Since its establishment in 2005, BSC has developed an active role in fostering HPC in Spain and Europe as an essential tool for international competitiveness in science and engineering. The centre manages the Red Española de Supercomputación (RES), and is a hosting member of the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) initiative. We actively participate in the main European HPC initiatives, in close cooperation with other European supercomputing centres. With a total staff of more than 500 R&D experts and professionals, BSC has been successful in attracting talent, and our research focuses on four fields: Computer Sciences, Life Sciences, Earth Sciences and Computer Applications in Science and Engineering. /system/content_providers/images/000/000/636/original/BSC-blue-large.jpg?1632400405

    COG-Train https://tess.elixir-europe.org/content_providers/cog-train COG-Train is an international educational initiative providing open-access learning in SARS-CoV-2 genomics. It aims to facilitate an increase in global genome sequencing and analysis capacity, reduce sequencing inequality and enhance pathogen surveillance. The programme’s training courses and development are built around our core concept of partnering with international researchers, public health experts and surveillance networks and providing open-access FREE training for all. COG-Train is funded by Wellcome Trust and the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office and led jointly by COVID-19 Genomics UK (COG-UK) consortium and Wellcome Connecting Science (WCS). Whole Viral Genome sequencing is an essential tool to identify and track the emergence and spread of SARS-CoV-2 variants as the COVID-19 pandemic progresses. Sequence data informs public health interventions and the further development of diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines. There is inequity of access to pathogen sequencing worldwide, and COG-Train is committed to contributing towards efforts that close this gap. By building global partnerships with sequencing networks and scientists around the world, we hope to build a truly inclusive training programme that shares the many challenges faced in sequencing efforts, as well as highlighting the numerous success stories, and facilitating knowledge sharing. Outputs include a series of massive online, open-access courses on all aspects of SARS-CoV-2 sequencing based on WCS’s successful use of the FutureLearn platform, as well as week-long intensive virtual training courses, short expert workshops and concurrent distributed Classrooms, the latter of which utilises blended training. The distributed classroom model will be used to increase reach and impact of the learning materials, with training being delivered simultaneously in multiple classrooms across many countries. The training programme includes train-the-trainer components to help further build capacity in-country, rather than rely on a one-hit train and leave model. The COG-Train educational programme builds on the COG-UK values of data sharing, open collaboration, value for money, inclusivity and the prioritisation of public health impact. /system/content_providers/images/000/000/644/original/COG-Train_Logo.png?1657104279
