Moredun's transnational partnership with VetBioNet



Moredun Research Institute is an active member of the EU-funded VetBioNet programme, which provides transnational access to Moredun’s animal facilities for research projects.

To be able to tackle present and future animal and public health threats, cooperation between academic institutes, industries, international One Health organisations and policy makers across different nations is vital. VetBioNet (Veterinary Biocontained research facility Network) has been established as a response to this, providing a multidisciplinary network to drive the necessary European research and development.

VetBioNet gathers 28 academic and industrial partners from 12 countries across Europe, Africa, and Oceania. The project’s principal objectives are to reinforce the cooperation between Europe’s leading high-containment research infrastructures, to provide access to the high-end research facilities of the network, and to further improve the technical standard of the services provided.

VetBioNet is funded by the European Commission (EC) Horizon 2020 INFRAIA program allocating €10M for a project duration of 5 years (2017-21).
