Cooperation Agreement with EGA Signed

In early June 2022, GHGA, through the DKFZ as the coordinating legal entity, signed a collaboration agreement with the European Genome-Phenome Archive (EGA) to become the German national node of the federated EGA. GHGA is the second node to formally join the network, after Elixir Norway in May 2022.

Based on the agreement, GHGA will be able to exchange non-personal metadata across the EGA network to make it compatible with the „FAIR“ principles. Being recognized as a national node of the federated EGA is a major milestone for GHGA as it will enable our users to share data across Europe and beyond.

We are looking forward to engaging further with colleagues from the EGA network!
