In October 2016, EAGDA held a meeting at the UK Data Archive to discuss best practices for data curation and infrastructure management.

The aim was to bring together people from different disciplines to share challenges and approaches to managing the increasing volume and richness of data being generated by research.


EAGDA supports cohort studies and their Data Access Committees (DACs) by promoting good working practices, consistent governance and transparent decision making.

It also wants to increase UK input into international policy discussions on data access.

EAGDA is a partnership between Wellcome, Cancer Research UK, the Economic and Social Research Council and the Medical Research Council
