The European Research Infrastructure on Highly Pathogenic Agents (ERINHA) is dedicated to the study of emerging and re-emerging pathogens of high incidence. It brings together the main European high containment facilities (BSL3/3+; BSL4) that support research into highly infectious diseases such as CCHF, Ebola, Marburg and Nipah virus. ERINHA provides access to the expertise and resources of its members' high containment facilities, enabling a broad community of researchers, including from Africa, to conduct research on these deadly pathogens. Currently, free access to these facilities is provided by the EU-funded Integrated Services for Infectious Disease Outbreak Research (ISIDORe) project.

ERINHA's mission is to advance research on high-impact (re)emerging diseases and to contribute to the protection of human health by improving European and global preparedness and response to highly pathogenic infectious threats.

ISIDORe:bringing together all European research services to study pathogens with epidemic potential.

The Integrated Services for Infectious Disease Outbreak Research (ISIDORe) project was launched with the ambition to provide a new approach to research on outbreak preparedness and response in Europe. Funded by the EU and coordinated by the ERINHA infrastructure, ISIDORe brings together resources from all major European research infrastructures and infectious disease networks. As such, the programme provides free access to an unprecedented integrated portfolio of cutting-edge research services, driven by the One Health approach and dedicated to the study of epidemic-prone diseases.

In its first year, the ISIDORe programme supported research projects on rapid response and preparedness for epidemics with calls for proposals targeting SARS-CoV-2 variants, monkeypox virus and a wide variety of pathogens on the priority list of pathogens set up under the recommendations of key agencies and initiatives such as WHO, WHO, UNAIDS, ECDC, HERA, EC, WEA, ECPI, GLOPID-R, EFPIA, and crucial for epidemic preparedness.

We provide free transnational access to a comprehensive portfolio of high-quality services - the most advanced, innovative, and cutting-edge available - to support the projects of scientists from the Academy or the private sector in Europe and internationally.

Pandemic preparedness calls covering Risk Group 4 pathogens, vector-borne pathogens, respiratory pathogens, and pathogen X are still open.
