|Abstract:||This paper provides an outline of the development and growth of EUROCAT, the European network of congenital anomaly registers. In recent years the network has been through a period of transition and change. The Central Register of data has transferred from the Ulster University to the EC Joint Research Centre. The benefits of combining data from across Europe, from different populations and countries are described by the uses to which these data can be put. These uses include surveillance of anomalies at a local, regional or pan-European level, pharmacovigilance, registration of rare diseases. New studies and projects are underway, including EUROlinkCAT (a Horizon 2020 funded data-linkage project), promising a fruitful future in further research of congenital anomalies.|
