EPGRIS - approach

   each country prepares a National Inventory
        organised by National Focal Person
        with EPGRIS support (meeting & technology)
        standardised format
   EURISCO acts as European Search Catalogue
        uploads from National Inventories
        continued after EPGRIS by ECP/GR
EPGRIS - funding

   EU Fifth Framework Programme 1998-2002
        concerted action to set up network and database
        budget €480,470
   ECP/GR and IPGRI
        priority activity
        support to non-EU countries
   National Programmes
        creation National Inventories

EPGRIS - expected achievements

   creation network of National PGR Inventories
       in EU and associated states (other European
        countries on a self-funding basis)
   creation of EURISCO
       frequently and automatically updated
       data on > 70% of the PGR accessions held in Europe
   spin-off
       improved collaboration between European genebanks
        increased capacity to manage PGR documentation
EPGRIS - expected achievements

global perspective
 EURISCO is European node in global PGR
  information network
                                      WIEWS
                              (collection based)

EPGRIS - achievements

   Network of National Inventory Focal Persons
    was created
       39 National PGR Inventory Focal Persons
        representing 41 countries were nominated
       potentially used as European Plant Genetic
        Resources Infra-Structure
EPGRIS - achievements

   2x 4 regional meetings have been organised to
    support and co-ordinate creation of NIs
       twice 32 Focal Persons participated


   5 workshops have been organised
       “Training workshop on PGR documentation: building a
        national ex situ PGR inventory.”
       34 Focal Persons participated

   7 staff visits have been organised
EPGRIS - achievements

   nearly all countries involved have created a
    National Inventory
       27 NIs were uploaded to EURISCO in testing phase
       13 NIs available on-line via EURISCO website
       11 NIs, 306927 accessions, loaded in EURISCO
        (August 29th)
EPGRIS - achievements

   EPGRIS web-site has been created
       point of reference to all involved and all interested
       providing access to documents, addresses, National
        Inventories, etc.

       technical structure based on SINGER
       automatic data validation and upload
       web site including dynamic user interface

       potential for further expansion
EPGRIS - achievements

   other achivements
       baseline of PGR documentation in national reports
        and questionnaires
       more attention to documentation in genebanks
       model for other PGR documentation networks

       2 coordination meetings, many technical and
        discussion papers, topical presentations, publications,
        etc.
EPGRIS - final remarks

   EURISCO - major achievement
       time was right (technology and policy)
       support by policy makers (EU, ECP/GR)
       tremendous input from very many
