EURIPRED (European Research Infrastructures for Poverty Related Diseases) is a collaborative infrastructure programme with the objective to reinforce the knowledge infrastructure across diseases. The ultimate aim is to speed the development of new tools (vaccines, drugs, microbicides) to combat Tuberculosis, HIV, Malaria, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. EURIPRED is co-funded with € 8.5 million by the European Commission. Scientists from 17 research partners in 10 countries collaborate in this programme.

EURIPRED started in November 2013, is a 4-year project and has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 312661.
