Description The second funding phase of the EUPRIM-Net Project ("European Primate Network: Advancing 3Rs and International Standards in Biological and Biomedical Research") now brings together nine European primate centres that combine research and breeding to form a virtual European Primate Centre. Thanks to their wide range of biological and biomedical research activities, extensive knowledge and infrastructure resources already exist. The EUPRIM-Net Project links the existing knowledge and resources to pool into an integrated and efficient network to improve basic and applied biological and biomedical research with primates as well as housing and breeding conditions for primates.
