Microbial resources for a green, healthy and sustainable future
Launched in 2012, the pan-European Microbial Resource Research Infrastructure (MIRRI) is part of the Biological and Medical Sciences Research Infrastructures (BMS RIs) ESFRI landscape. Currently, more than 40 public biorepositories and research institutes from 19 European countries collaborate to establish MIRRI as an European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) under EU law.
The vision of MIRRI is to be a unique pan-European high-performance platform adding value to known and yet unknown microbial biodiversity and exploiting novel sources and knowledge to discover and disclose for the bioeconomy and bioscience. MIRRI will generate solutions to societal challenges by stimulating interactions between academia and bioindustry.

The BY-COVID (BeYond COVID) project aims to make COVID-19 data accessible to scientists in laboratories but also to anyone who can use it, such as medical staff in hospitals or government officials. Going beyond SARS-CoV-2 data, the project will provide a framework for making data from other infectious diseases open and accessible to everyone.
