Scope of EVAg
EVA has been used as a robust foundation to build a new and significantly improved project: The European Virus Archive goes Global (EVAg), by including an international group of 25 laboratories including; 16 EU member state institutions and 9 non-EU institutions. Closely collaborating with the core partners have currently identified 10 Associated Partners from 7 non-EU and 3 EU member states, each sharing the same interest for the generation of an international virus collection. EVAg objectives were to meet the needs of scientists worldwide, by generating a carefully authenticated animal virus collection that is larger than any existing repository, and readily available to all laboratories that meet approved ethical, safety and security standards. There are currently 2200 products available on the web-based catalogue, and 1500 online inquiries have been processed for 4500 items ordered, amongst them 600accesses have been provided free of charge.
EVAg is a Research Infrastructure funded by the European Commission’s H2020 project under Grant Agreement No. 653316 (2014-2019).EVAg Website
