CINECA PROJECT

CINECA’s aim is to deliver a federated infrastructure for data discovery and sharing of human genetic and phenotypic data for research that is interoperable across continents. CINECA [Common Infrastructure for National Cohorts in Europe, Canada and Africa] is funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 programme and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
