*EuroTransBio (ETB) is a network of national/regional funding agencies which coordinate their efforts to launch annual calls for R&D&I projects in the area of modern biotechnology. The network started off as an ERA-NET initiative in 2004 and was supported by the European Commission in FP6 and FP7. From 2014, ETB is one of the first initiatives to operate in a self-sustainable way i.e. without further funding for coordination and networking (ETB international funding initiative). The consortium of EuroTransBio consists of organisations from 7 European countries and regions.
