Government: Norway joins European collaboration for cross-border access to genomic data

Norway now joins an ambitious and extensive genomics collaboration with other European countries. The collaboration will benefit Norwegian research, Norwegian health care and Norwegian patients.

The goal of this European collaboration is to improve the research quality. The data can contribute to better prevention, earlier and easier diagnostics, less side effects and more precise prognosis through personalized medicine. 

– There is a huge potential for knowledge and medical treatment in genomics. Health care personnel in Norway need access to international databases with genetic information in order to offer the best possible diagnostics and treatments. By entering into this collaboration, Norwegian experts will be able to contribute to the development of these databases, says Minister of Health Bent Høie.
