European Virus Archive GLOBAL

The EU-funded EVA-GLOBAL project H2020-EU. (https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/871029 ) gathers 38 academic institutions at the forefront of human, animal and plant research in Virology, associated with key Non-Governmental Organizations including WHO, OIE, FAO. EVA-GLOBAL network is reinforced by 12 Associate Partners and 5 Associate international networks. This new project is built on the strong foundations constituted by two previous EVA (2009-2014), FP7 and EVAg (2014-2019), H2020 projects. It includes high calibre institutes with the appropriate expertise to collect, characterise, standardise, authenticate and distribute human, animal and plant viruses. EVA-GLOBAL is conceived to be an open access entity aiming at developing synergies and complementary capabilities in such a way to offer an improved access to the researchers. A single-entry point, the web-based catalogue, gives a facilitate access to the end-user, to the collections including viruses, derived materials and engineered cells.

Through this new ambitious four-year project and the new institutes joining the consortium, EVA-GLOBAL will become the largest virtual virus collection for human, animal and plant viruses and will move beyond the current state-of-the-art to provide an increasingly valuable resource and service to the scientific community, including government health departments, higher education institutes, industry and to the general public as well.
