The European Regional Network comprises not only the European partners in STAR-IDAZ, but the entire Collaborative Working Group on European Animal Health and Welfare Research (CWG), which itself comprises the same members as the EMIDA ERA-NET (Coordination of European Research on Emerging and Major Infectious Diseases of Livestock) and the ANIHWA ERA-NET (Animal Health and Welfare).

EMIDA, which ended on 31 December, 2011, was funded by the European Commission in order to build on and accelerate the work of the CWG in developing a durable focused network of national research funders in Member and Associated States of the EU for the purpose of sharing information, coordinating activities and working towards a common research agenda and mutual research funding activities in the field of animal health. Activities to date include the development of several databases for the purpose of mapping the European Research landscape, the development of instruments for running common, transnational research calls (two performed to date) and the production of a Strategic Research Agenda.

European STAR-IDAZ partners will report on STAR-IDAZ activities at the six-monthly CWG meetings and will report on CWG activities at the annual STAR-IDAZ consortium meetings.
