2 44 core Partner Institutions 16 European Countries National AIDS Research Agencies (ANRS, MRC, NATEC, ISS....) Over 450 researchers 357 affiliated Centers


4 - will spread expertise and resources, will provide training and mobility of scientists at all levels and will foster lasting collaborations between west and centre-east Europe. - will pave the way toward the creation of the European Research Area, capable of integrating and coordinating genuine, independent and interdependent research programmes. - will be able to attract public and private co-funding and positively interact with other non-EU organizations and research agencies.

42 Feedback….. And Future

43 FP6 NEAT PROJECT SCIENTIFIC REVIEW Date of review: June 30, 2010 The decision of restructuring and reassigning the work groups to not more than 4 WPs appears very wise and obviously translated into a more effective overall structure. ……… Impressive is principally the successful setup of a clinical trial on timely and very relevant clinical issues, i.e. the setup of a novel database targeting issues such as HCV/HIV co- infection and sexual transmission of HCV. NEAT is about to establish a competent network to address key questions in the context of long term HIV management. The NEAT/ANRS trial 001 may be one of those key studies.

44 The collaborative efforts seem to have now reached the initially set aims. An impressive record of publications in peer reviewed journals as well as presentations at international conferences speak for themselves - congratulations. Also the principal idea of internally reviewed IGs that stem from within the consortium is judged as excellent. The consortium has in the meantime produced an appealing public web portal….
