EURODONOR (European Donor and Organ Registry)
Jan. 2003 – June 2004
EURODONOR was the first European project involving European national competent authorities with the goal to create a portal for the online data collection on activities of organ transplants in Europe and made it possible to lay the foundations for transparency and mutual trust indispensable for future cooperation activities in this area. Key element was the harmonization of terminology and glossaries used for the collection of data that allowed us to obtain comparable data related to the donation, transplantation and waiting lists.
