Abstract

This paper provides an outline of the development and growth of EUROCAT, the European network of congenital anomaly registers. In recent years the network has been through a period of transition and change. The Central Register of data has transferred from the Ulster University to the EU Joint-Research-Centre, Ispra, Italy.The benefits of combining data from across Europe, from different populations and countries are described by the uses to which these data can be put. These uses include:. surveillance of anomalies at a local, regional or pan-European level. pharmacovigilance. registration of rare diseasesNew studies and projects are underway, including EUROlinkCAT (a Horizon 2020 funded data-linkage project), promising a fruitful future in further research of congenital anomalies.
