European Research Infrastructures
for Poverty Related Diseases
Newsletter November 2014

Deadline 2 December 2014

EURIPRED is a EC-funded (FP7) infrastructure project to facilitate and support translational research for poverty related diseases, such as HIV, TB, malaria and hepatitis. The services provided by EURIRPED can be accessed for FREE by European scientists.

The EURIPRED services are:
•    Biological materials and reference reagents/ standards – NIBSC - CFAR
•    Vaccine adjuvant & formulation – VFL - UNIL
•    Microarray facility for screening & evaluation – JPT

Application for TNA services will be selected under a peer-reviewed process. Only European user groups (from EU Member States or Associated States) can apply for the free services, and only to EURIPRED Service infrastructures outside their own country. For scientists based in countries outside the EU Member States or its Associated States, access is subject to a range of charges according to the service requested (see also Eligibility Criteria).

With agreement with EC, scientific excellence should be the main selection criterion i.e. objectives, feasibility, innovation, quality and record of investigators, quality of the proposed methodology, potential impact (need for knowledge dissemination, sustainability), compliance with national and international standards of research are considered to be sub-components of scientific excellence.
