in development EJP RD Metadata model

General Information
As part of the European Joint Programme (EJP) for Rare Disease, we are developing standards for rare disease registries to describe their metadata that will improve the FAIR-ness of these resources. The core model is designed to represent data about a rare disease patient and biosample registries. The model is based on and builds on existing standards, such as the European Rare Disease Registry Infrastructure and the Common Data Elements from the rare disease community and other more generalised standards for data sharing such as the W3C DCAT vocabulary. We are also working to align with similar schema standarisation efforts such as RD connect semantic model,, bioschemas, MIABIS and GA4GH (see also schema blocks and phenopackets.
