FP6 NEAT PROJECT SCIENTIFIC REVIEWDate of review: June 30, 2010

  • The decision of restructuring and reassigning the work groups to not more than 4 WPs appears very wise and obviously translated into a more effective overall structure. ………

  • Impressive is principally the successful setup of a clinical trial on timely and very relevant clinical issues,

  • i.e. the setup of a novel database targeting issues such as HCV/HIV co- infection and sexual transmission of HCV.

  • NEAT is about to establish a competent network to address key questions in the context of long term HIV management. The NEAT/ANRS trial 001 may be one of those key studies.

2007 2011

  • The collaborative efforts seem to have now reached the initially set aims.

  • An impressive record of publications in peer reviewed journals as well as presentations at international conferences speak for themselves - congratulations.

  • Also the principal idea of internally reviewed IGs that stem from within the consortium is judged asexcellent.

  • The consortium has in the meantime produced an appealing public web portal….
