PHARE PROJECTSin order to improve research capabilities of the 2nd Equipment Center of National Research Fund including the National Institute of Public Health and for the development of microbiological diagnostics of the Center for Epidemiology and those of regional laboratories of NPHMOS (National Public Health and Medical Officer System)
The first round of PHARE technological support has been won by the Equipment Centers members of the National Scientific Research Fund. This Equipment Center has been decentralised into 5 Institutions. The Center No. 2 has been located at the Semmelweis University Medical School and at the National Institute of Public Health, Budapest.
During the first round the 2nd Equipment Center of National Scientific Research Fund (OTKA) was supported with $ 1,120,000 of PHARE funding between 1995 and 1997.
Under project No. 2002 /000-180-02-03 the development of microbiological epidemiological laboratories of National Center for Epidemiology and the laboratory network of the Office of the Chief Medical Officer was approved in 2002.
The following arguments have convinced the ministries and the responsible bodies of European Commission, that without support the laboratory network will be unable to cope the requirements of EU.
