From consensus to applicability 

 

The European Network of P4 laboratories was created in 2005, when it received a 3-year funding (EURONET-P4 project) to enhance and maintain cooperation, communication and exchange of information between European Bio-safety Level 4 (BL4) laboratories. This in order to enable a rapid, effective and coordinated responses to health threats to European population resulting from natural infection by class 4 agents or their deliberate release.

In 2006 the Network was granted a further 3-year grant to continue its activities (ENP4Lab) in promoting harmonisation and standardisation of Biosafety practices and diagnostic procedures, and to offer assistance to countries where new BSL-4 laboratories are under construction or planned.
As of 2011, the network is continuing its activities as NIV (Network of Infectious Viruses) within the EC-QUANDHIP project and in the framework of the EC-funded ERINHA project.
