Our mission: Enhance research through IT expertise.
Develop a federated and cooperative eScience and Research IT support community in Switzerland to provide support, transfer knowledge and build skills and capacities in the Swiss research academic sector.
Our scope: Support Research IT across all disciplines.
Through EnhanceR, research organisations can receive support from leading experts in their fields through a simple organisational interface. By contacting EnhanceR, they can engage with a consultant who helps to elucidate their issue and come up with a plan to solve it. This is then used as a basis to create and deliver a 'package' of support services, or alternatively to assist researchers in accessing existing national-scale services.
EnhanceR is the follow-up to the successful eSCT project, which assisted a wide number of researchers across Switzerland through the delivery of over 40 support projects. These ranged from the development of a scalable analysis pipeline for neuroscience, to the benchmarking of bioinformatics tools, to the creation of a resource-sharing platform across institutes that now has over 4,000 users.
