About eurogentest

General introduction

EuroGentest is a project funded by the European Commission to harmonize the process of genetic testing, from sampling to counseling, across Europe. The ultimate goal is to ensure that all aspects of genetic testing are of high quality thereby providing accurate and reliable results for the benefit of the patients.

General information about EuroGentest phase 2

EuroGentest2 was a Coordination Action funded by the 7th FrameworkExit this website of the European Commission. The project was organised in 3 Units looking at all aspects of genetic testing. The integration between Unit 1, 2 and 3 was warranted by two transversal/cross-sectional work packages and one work package dedicated to managerial issues.
