How can EMPHASIS be organized?
EMPHASIS will be established as a distributed European RI with a “Hub and national Nodes” structure with different roles that will be elaborated in detail in the preparatory phase.
An essential part of the hub and note interaction is the development of national platforms represented by a centre heading the national phenotyping activities within a country. This centre interacts with the hub and informs the national community. The national platform should establish and follow rules that organize the national platform. As national platform in this context means that a national representative of a country represents the country, organizes, and informs the stakeholders within a country in an open and inclusive way.
The table illuminates some examples how the hub - node interaction would address different topics.
