Collaboration on sensitive data management between ELIXIR Finland and ELIXIR Spain

The staff exchange project between ELIXIR Finland and ELIXIR Spain enabled Juha Törnroos from ELIXIR Finland to spend seven months working in ELIXIR Spain (Center for Genomic Regulation and Barcelona Supercomputing Center) and participate in day-to-day activities relevant to the project.

The goal of the project was to strengthen the collaboration between ELIXIR Finland and ELIXIR Spain in the management of sensitive data and to support the mutual uptake of technological solutions developed in the two respective countries.

The collaboration enabled adoption of key technological solutions from European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) to Local EGA and vice versa and supported the integration of ELIXIR AAI by EGA and RD-Connect. Overall, the staff-exchange programme boosted the knowledge and technology exchange between ELIXIR Finland and Spain and paved the way to new project proposals in Federated Human Data 2019-2021, ELIXIR Beacon 2019-2021, and others.
