EMBL first to ratify ELIXIR Consortium Agreement

EMBL Council formally ratified the ELIXIR Consortium Agreement (ECA) during its meeting in Heidelberg on 26 June. The fifteen countries that have already signed the interim Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) will continue the process of ratifying the ECA in their country. The ECA comes into effect when the first five countries ratify it and this is expected in late 2013.
