The consolidation of systems biology research - stimulating the widespread adoption of systems approaches in biomedicine, biotechnology, and agri-food

Basic Information


Life sciences are certainly one of the most innovative and fascinating fields of research in Europe and Systems Biology clearly is a driving force in 21st century life sciences. It provides an excellent approach to understanding dynamic interactions between components of a living system, between living systems and their interaction with the environment. Addressing biological questions by integrating experiments in iterative cycles with computational modelling and simulation to test and create new hypotheses is suitable for versatile applications, e.g.: biomedicine, agri-food and biotechnology.
It is the aim of ERASysBio to consolidate systems biology research by stimulating the widespread adoption of the approach in the above mentioned fields. Ten funding partners with support through the ERA-Net Plus scheme of the European Commission are committed to combine their Systems Biology research in a trans-national initiative
