ELSI 2.0 also seeks to provide information on research resources and prospective projects, work spaces for online collaboration. It includes educational webinars and workshops, and as well it supports strategic activities including: reviews and meta-analyses of ELSI research and policy; development of foresight papers; rapid response action teams to advise on specific issues; international memos for identifying emerging policy issues and priorities, and modelling exercises for the construction of international frameworks and approaches

ELSI 2.0 will make it easy for an ELSI scholar in Africa to connect with other scholars around the world or to tap into resources not otherwise readily available. For a U.S.-based advocacy organization, the Collaboratory will provide essential services to extend the reach of work otherwise locked up in the academic literature. A funder in the European Union could request a rapid response team to respond to ad hoc, short-notice requests related to emerging issues or to forecast important policy directions. A patient could become an active participant in ELSI research or find literature and experts on subjects such as direct-to-consumer testing.  For a scholar in Asia looking to fund a multicountry effort, the Collaboratory could help identify funding sources, collaborators, and workshops for the idea. Scholars could choose to be observers or builders and creators (posing projects for a workspace or a crowd-sourced effort) or to motivate collaborators who would not otherwise be accessible (clinicians, patients, policy-makers). In this way, ELSI 2.0 will continually build and support global ELSI research and policy-making capacity.
