Czech Republic has become the fourth country to ratify the ELIXIR Consortium Agreement (ECA), which is the document that provides the legal basis for ELIXIR. The ECA has already been ratified by the United Kingdom, Sweden, Switzerland and EMBL. ELIXIR will become a permanent legal entity when a fifth country signs the ECA. This is expected to happen in the coming months and a Founding Ceremony will take place in Brussels on 18 December 2013 to mark this occassion.
A local press release, in Czech, is available here.
