Abstract

The original EuroStemCell was an integrated project funded under the European Commission’s Sixth Framework Programme. The current EuroStemCell launched in March 2010 with more than 90 European stem cell and regenerative medicine research labs in a coordinated effort to engage with the public about the research.

Mission

The original EuroStemCell was an integrated project funded under the European Commission’s Sixth Framework Programme. During EuroStemcell’s four-year duration, more than 100 researchers from 27 of Europe’s best stem cell labs tackled the basic, applied, clinical, and ethical research needed to build the foundations for regenerative medicine. New methodologies, media, and tools to benefit the whole research community were developed during the project.

The current EuroStemCell launched in March 2010 with more than 90 European stem cell and regenerative medicine research labs in a coordinated effort to engage with the public about the research.

More than 100 scientists have contributed to the site, and others are welcome to become involved in writing, reviewing, and translating content in specialized areas.

Financing

EuroStemCell is financed by the European Commission’s Sixth and Seventh Framework Programmes. Additional funding is extended through Horizon 2020, the European Union Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.

Data Sharing

The EuroStemCell website features a stem cell toolkit with resources for educators, scientists, and others. The tools have been extensively tested, can be customized, and come with full instructions. Additionally, the stem cell resource directory includes more than 100 educational resources and teaching tools. Resources can be commented upon, and, with a registered account, users can log in and submit their own stem cell resources to be included in the directory.
