Abstract European countries have developed national strategies and action plans implementing the Global Plan of Action for animal genetic resources. National action plans include development and implementation of cryopreservation strategies for animal genetic resources. Although some cross-border collaboration exists in Europe, cryopreservation programmes are national responsibilities and generally organised at the national level. National cryopreservation programs have different specific objectives and involvement of stakeholders and institutions varies. National experts indicate that there is a need for further development of national frameworks for cryopreservation and for exchange of state of the art knowledge and experiences between countries. The aim of the European Regional Focal Point is to support development of national conservation programmes and to enhance stronger international collaboration through development of a European cryopreservation strategy.
