COMBINE has a coordination role (WP1, WP2, WP3) and a scientific mission (WP4, WP5)
Work Package 1: Coordination and Support
The Coordination and Support Office (CSO) coordinates support of the Accelerator projects. A number of Cross-Accelerator groups – a Data Management Group, a Coordination Committee, a Communication Advisory Board, and an Ethics Advisory Board – have been established as a resource for projects and will play key roles in overseeing progress in the AMR Accelerator.
Work Package 2: Guidelines, tools and infrastructure to support data and knowledge management
COMBINE will establish a robust data management process based on FAIR principles. As a basis, the ND4BB InfoCentre – which was set-up within TRANSLOCATION – will be used and extended. The software developed within COMBINE to enable cross-site access, and flexible handling of experimental documentation from early discovery through to development. It will support a wide range of data formats, from simple office documents and chemical structures to preclinical and clinical data sets, while retaining compatibility with all common operating systems. Documentation covering data governance, quality, access, and analysis procedures have already been developed and will be transferred to the programmes in the Accelerator.
