The European Rare Disease Registry Infrastructure (ERDRI) renders rare disease registries' data searchable and findable. This is achieved through the provision of following components: European Directory of Registries (ERDRI.dor), Central Metadata Repository (ERDRI.mdr) and Pseudonymisation Tool.

ERDRI tools schema

ERDRI supports existing registries in view of their interoperability and the creation of new registries.

Central Metadata Repository (ERDRI.mdr)

ERDRI.mdr ensures semantic interoperability between RD registries. It stores all data elements (metadata) used by the participating registries, including the names of the data elements (designations) and their definitions.
Within ERDRI.mdr metadata items from any registry can be either uploaded automatically or inserted manually.
In case of establishing a new registry or amending an existing registry, a user can select from the metadata contained in ERDRI.mdr.

Pseudonymisation Tool

The Pseudonymisation tool is provided to all participating registries and will be available soon.

Search broker (ERDRI.sebro)

ERDRI.sebro allows any user to retrieve metadata of interest and its hosting registry via ERDRI.sebro's connection to ERDRI.mdr and ERDRI.dor.

(Coming soon)

ERDRI was developed in collaboration with Goethe University Frankfurt.
