BIOR represents Latvia in the DURABLE project
DURABLE is a large-scale project represented by the Institute for Food Safety, Animal Health and Environment BIOR within the European program EU4Health.
Its main objective is to develop a one-stop-shop for emerging disease laboratory preparedness, establish a sustainable network of laboratories and research institutes that can address the barriers of better preparedness, and provide alerts, real-time scientific data and integrated analyses to HERA and other relevant European authorities such as ECDC.
Institute of Food Safety, Animal Health and Environment BIOR is a DURABLE project partner. The BIOR team will lend their expertise to devising a suitable training program to harmonize knowledge within the consortium and its wider network. The program will promote interactions between laboratories, notably help improve knowledge of biosafety measures in crisis situations, diagnostic methods and sequencing, and include hands-on activities in preparation for pandemics.
