The AIROPico Project


AIROPico stands for Academic Industry R&D Opportunities
for Picornaviruses

This Research Project will generate more knowledge on commonly encountered infections of human picornaviruses like the common cold. This knowledge will give us more insight in these virus infections and the disease they cause. Based on these insights effective antiviral treatments will be developed.

AIROPico is an Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways project (IAPP). It will provide interdisciplinary education and training to company researchers and university scientists. Twenty-one staff exchanges will enforce the collaboration within the Consortium on picornavirus biology, diagnostics and therapy development.


Please note the upcoming BELVIR/AIROPico Workshop on The Path Towards Novel Antiviral Therapies on May 31st 2017 hosted by the University of Leuven
