About FEGA Sweden


FEGA Sweden is an archive for storing and sharing all kinds of data resulting from biomedical research projects. As a national node of the Federated European Genome-phenome Archive (FEGA), we enable researchers to store their data in Sweden in a way that meets the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Any data submitted to the archive is subject to controlled access, which means that access to the data only will be granted after a formal application procedure. Using FEGA Sweden for storing and sharing data is free of charge for academic users.

Our mission

We enable sharing of personally identifiable data resulting from Swedish biomedical research projects.

An increasing amount of human related data is generated in Swedish biomedical research projects. FEGA Sweden is a national resource for archiving, accessing and sharing these data, which previously has been missing in Sweden. FEGA Sweden employs the FAIR data principles, thereby making the data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable.

The organisations behind FEGA Sweden

FEGA Sweden is hosted by the National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS), which legally is part of Uppsala University. NBIS forms the bioinformatics platform at SciLifeLab and constitutes the Swedish node of the European organisation ELIXIR.
