CORBEL Catalogue of Services

 

Why do we need a Catalogue of Services?

Currently there are 13 biological and medical sciences Research Infrastructures (RIs) in Europe, all of them working jointly together in CORBEL towards offering shared services for life-science.
All RIs offer services, i.e. researchers from academia and industry can access their facilities, technologies and expertise. Services can simply be consultation, access to experts, but also access to data and biological samples, use of data analysis tools, access to facilities (e.g. highly specialised microscopes) plus support from technicians and much more.

The CORBEL Catalogue of Services is the first tool to list the main services of all these RIs at a glance and it aims to facilitate the utilisation of RI services by researchers from all over the world.

The Catalogue of Services as displayed below aims to provide you a basic overview on existing services within distinct thematic fields.
You can either use the Catalogue of Services to identify a single RI to help you with your work or you can create your own CORBEL service pipelines, i.e. using several RIs subsequently.

Examples of service pipelines are provided here.

ERINHA

Website: www.erinha.eu

Contact person(s): Dr. Hervé Raoul, Diana Stepanyan-Yerdamian

European Research infrastructure on Highly Pathogenic Agents (ERINHA) is set up to reinforce the European capacities for the study of high consequence pathogens (e.g. Ebola, Lassa, Nipah etc.) and enhance the coordination of Biosafety level 4 and supporting infrastructures. It provides a world-leading high containment capacities and unique expertise and gives access to all interested relevant scientists with large scale research programmes. ERINHA as a legal entity operates as an AISBL - International non-profit Association under Belgian law. It started its implementation phase from July 2017.

Services provided

The services offered by ERINHA include

  • access to state of art European high containment facilities and high consequence pathogens expertise (BSL 4 and connecting infrastructures) to perform research activities (cutting-edge technologies and functions to perform excellence oriented research: e.g. epi-fluorescence microscopes, automate for animal biological analysis, cytometry, laminar BSC etc.)
  • project coordination and management of large scale research programmes on high consequence pathogens
  • training for potential users
  • advice and scientific expertise provider: RG4 pathogens research, containment facilities construction, biosafety/biosecurity issues, sample transport etc.
  • access to pathogens specimens

Costs for offered services are currently under reevaluation.
For further information please contact us.

Access modes

The ERINHA's Central Coordination Unit ensures access to the RI services. Projects can be submitted by academic, public and industrial users. Projects will be selected based on the scientific excellence and should match with ERINHA's scientific strategy.

Why to work with us

The 2014-2015 Ebola outbreak and cases in Europe demonstrated the worldwide vulnerability and need for common action putting together rare high containment capacities and expertise to be able to increase European and global preparedness for outbreaks of high consequence pathogens. ERINHA facilitates access to required infrastructure capacities thanks to its CCU and multiple high containment and complementary European resources. It is a unique coordinated infrastrucuture providing transnational access to its facilities, large scope of services and shorter delays in access.

Countries involved

FR, SE, PT
Upcoming members: HU, GR

Please note: Most of the RIs are constantly developing their portfolio of services, so if you do not find the service/tool you are looking for, do not hesitate to contact the RI and ask for it!

This project receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 654248.
