Opportunities for national institutions to benefit from the EMBL model

Partnerships were inspired by the desire of member states to make sure that EMBL’s research strategy and operational model are implemented on the national level. They comprise not only an inter-institutional research initiative, but also serve to secure better integration and participation of national scientific communities into EMBL’s activities.
