On 14 september 2018, the Netherlands X-omics Initiative had their consortium kick-off meeting. Consortium members from the Dutch partners involved gathered to get to know each other and to determine the next steps to start up the project.

Introductions on the different aspects of the project provided insight in the state-of-the-art of current Dutch research facilities and technologies in the areas of genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and data integration & analysis. Subsequent break-out sessions led to fruitful discussions and the first plans of action to realize the Netherlands X-omics initiative.
 
The Netherlands X-omics Initiative received 17,3M euro funding from the NWO large scale scientific infrastructure program and is coordinated by Alain van Gool of the Radboudumc. The goals of the X-omics project are to push the technological boundaries of the individual omics technologies and to realize a genuinly integrated X-omics infrastructure. See www.x-omics.nl.
