A partner in collaborative projects

In addition to providing various services, EMBRC contributes to European and international projects. Diverse in scope and country involvement, these projects aim to enhance EMBRC activities and/or services, strengthen collaboration with similar European organisations ('research infrastructures'), structure the research community, and provide services to support research. 

Collaborative projects provide an opportunity to develop joint services, tools and activities, as well as to enhance knowledge-sharing in view of optimising research in Europe and beyond.
