EuroCoord is a Network of
Excellence established by several of the biggest HIV cohorts and
collaborations within Europe - CASCADE,
COHERE, EuroSIDA, and PENTA.

of each collaboration to ensure that the best, most competitive HIV
research is performed.
The main advantage of this collaborative method of working is
the formation of a common virtual database, which currently has
access to data from over 300,000 HIV positive people from many
different settings in Europe and beyond.
EuroCoord is made up of 24 beneficiaries chosen from 16 countries to ensure
representativeness across Europe. The nature of the collaboration

centres, or third parties.
The tasks of EuroCoord are organised into 15 different workpackages, all of which are interrelated, and
