Pathogen Data Focus Group

Introduction

The Pathogen Data Focus group aims to establish the basis for a distributed and interoperable network of regional and national pathogen data hubs. 

Goals

Through a joint effort, the Focus group will work towards:

  • Establishing consensus and promote the use and reuse of data, metadata and analysis standards
  • Promoting FAIR data sharing and equity
  • Proposing benchmark datasets and quality assessments
  • Fostering capacity building for pandemic preparedness through training, Maturity Models and tools.
  • Liaising with global pathogen epidemiology initiatives (e.g., PHA4GE, WHO, ECDC).

The Focus group will invite experts and stakeholders to join in this concerted, expert-driven effort towards sustaining and ensuring high-quality data for global surveillance and research.
