INFECT-ERA


In 2012 the NCN joined Infect-ERA (ERA-NET on human infectious diseases), network of  agencies funding research in European countries. The Infect-ERA consortium inspires international cooperation in the research of infectious diseases through transnational calls, supporting young researchers and gathering the relevant information on funding and infrastructures related to infectious diseases. Infect-ERA also strives to disseminate the results of its activities both to scientists and the public.
