nf-core is by design a collaborative effort, and would not exist if it were not for the efforts of many dedicated contributors. You can see a list of nf-core members on GitHub: https://github.com/orgs/nf-core/people
Some of the organisations running nf-core pipelines are listed below, along with a key person who you can contact for advice.

The Quantitative Biology Center provides a one-stop-shop for access to high-throughput technologies in the life sciences and the required bioinformatics analysis. As a bioinformatics core facility, we provide advanced data analysis techniques.
The BioFrontiers Institute at the University of Colorado (CU) is an interdisciplinary hub for bioscience research and education with a focus on improving human health.
The Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology, an Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, is dedicated to basic research in diverse aspects of plant molecular biology.
The nf-core project came about at the start of 2018 as the pet-project of Phil Ewels (@ewels). He's the head of the development facility at NGI Stockholm (National Genomics Infrastructure), part of SciLifeLab in Sweden.
The NGI has been developing analysis pipelines for use with it's genomics data for several years and started using a set of standards for each pipeline created. This helped other people run the pipelines on their own systems - typically Swedish research groups at first, but later on other core genomics facilities too.
As the number of people interested in these common pipelines grew, it seemed silly to keep all the pipelines under the umbrella of just SciLifeLab, complete with NGI prefixes and logos. To try to open up the effort into a truly collaborative project, nf-core was created and all relevant pipelines moved to this new GitHub Organisation.
