EU Commission launches a new call for expressions of interest for COVID-19
Horizon 2020, a research and innovation programme launched by the Commission, has mobilised another €122 million for urgently needed research into the coronavirus. The new call for expressions of interest contributes to the Commission's €1.4 billion pledge to the Coronavirus Global Response initiative, launched by President Ursula von der Leyen on 4 May 2020.
The new call will cover five areas, such as repurposing of manufacturing for vital medical supplies and equipment; medical technologies and digital tools to improve surveillance and care; behavioural, social and economic impacts of the outbreak responses; Pan-European COVID-19 cohorts; and collaboration of existing EU and international cohorts of relevance to COVID-19.
The deadline for submission is 11 June 2020.
