In January 2018 a joint proposal to host the Central Coordinating Unit (CCU) of MIRRI http://www.mirri.org/home.html in Portugal and Spain was submitted. MIRRI is a pan-European research infrastructure for microbial resources launched in 2012 with the aim to provide high quality cultures of microorganisms, associated data and a broad expertise to support research and development in the field of biotechnology. If that proposal is accepted, the MIRRI CCU will consist in two distributed sections: the Statutory Seat located at University of Minho (Portugal) and the Collaborative Working Environment (CWE) Hub operated from University of Valencia (Spain).
