Veterinary Biocontained facility Network for excellence in animal infectiology research and experimentation (VetBioNet)

Project summary

VetBioNet seeks to complement and strengthen the present European capacity and competence to meet the challenges of (re)emerging infectious diseases by establishing a comprehensive network of pre-eminent European BSL3 infrastructures, international organisations, and industry partners that is dedicated to advance research on epizootic and zoonotic diseases and to promote technological developments. Work on the project will in turn lead to the development of adequate and robust prevention and control measures.


Access to high-containment BSL3 animal experimental facilities and laboratories for researchers. Enhanced preparedness to respond to (re)emerging epizootic and zoonotic threats, including improved prevention and diagnostics.
