ERINHA final governing board

ERINHA2 consortium and Independent Advisory Board members, Brussels, June 2017

The ERINHA2 project aims at building a pan-European research infrastructure to reinforce the European coordination and capacities for the study and the surveillance of highly pathogenic micro-organisms.

The ERINHA infrastructure will provide open access to state-of-the-art BSL4 facilities for the European scientific community to enhance basic and finalised research activities and diagnostic activities.

The infrastructure will promote the harmonization of biosafety and biosecurity procedures, and will develop standards for the management of biological resources, diagnosis of group 4 pathogens and the training of BSL4 labs users.                         

ERINHA has been included in the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructure ESFRI roadmap in its updated version launched in March 2016.
