Unique opportunity to perform studies on veterinary infectious diseases requiring bio-contained research facilities

VetBioNet Transnational Access (TNA) project call



Application deadline: 30th October, 2021
VetBioNet offers free-of-charge access to the bio-contained animal facilities, analytical platforms & services of many of Europe’s leading institutes in epizootic and zoonotic diseases research

VetBioNet – Veterinary Biocontained facility Network for excellence in animal infectious disease research and experimentation

The principal aim of the VetBioNet infrastructure project is to establish and maintain a comprehensive network of pre-eminent high-containment (BSL3) research facilities, academic institutes, international organisations and industry partners that is dedicated to advance research on epizootic and zoonotic diseases and to promote technological developments.

The project includes 3 types of integrating activities:

  1. Transnational Access Activities (TNA), consisting mainly in providing access to the BSL3 facilities and technical resources of the consortium. This free-of-charge access is provided to researchers or enterprises proposing a sound project related to epizootic and zoonotic diseases. As part of its Transnational Access Activities, VetBioNet also offers access to sample collections available at partner institutes and produces on-demand samples. The details of TNA activities appear in the “TNA Call” section of the website;
  2. Networking Activities (NA) to foster the cooperation between project partners and to forge cooperative relationships with other European or international research initiatives, industrial stakeholders, international organisations and policy makers;
  3. Joint Research Activities (JRA) to improve the scientific and technological standards of services provided by the consortium.

VetBioNet assembles 28 partners from 12 different countries and has received a funding of 10 million euro from the European Commission (through the Horizon 2020 programme; INFRAIA-01-2016-2017 call) for a project period of 5 years (2017-22).
