 Coronavirus: 23 new research projects to receive €128 million from EU funding


The Commission will support 23 new research projects of 128 million euros in response to the ongoing epidemic of the coronavirus. The funding is part of The Horizon2020 programme, the EU's Research and Innovation Programme, as part of the Commission's €1.4 billion pledge to the Global Response to The Coronavirus Initiative, launched by President Ursula von der Line in May 2020.

The 23 projects selected on the funding shortlist include 347 research teams from 40 countries, including 34 participants from 16 countries outside the European Union. This funding will enable researchers to address the epidemic and its consequences by strengthening the industrial capacity to manufacture and deploy readily available solutions, develop medical technologies and digital tools, improve understanding of the behavioural, social and economic impacts of the epidemic, and learn from large groups of patients (regiments) throughout Europe. These research measures complement previous efforts to develop diagnostics, treatments and vaccines.

Maria Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, said: "Emergency funding from Horizon 2020 will enable researchers to develop quick solutions with patients, care workers, hospitals, communities and companies. The results will help them better deal with coronary virus infections and survive. It is encouraging to see the research community rallying quickly and strongly."

Thierry Britton, Commissioner for Internal Market added: "The excellent response to this call shows the wealth of new ideas for addressing the coronavirus, including new digital health solutions. Digital solutions and technologies have enabled us to stay in touch and interact with each other during the period of incarceration. It will also be an essential part of the long-term response to this virus and increase our resilience.    

The Commission is currently negotiating grant agreements with the selected beneficiaries. The new projects will cover:
Reorientation of manufacturing for rapid production of supplies and biomedical equipment needed for testing, treatment and prevention - for example using injection molding, additive manufacturing (3D printing), adaptive production and supply chain methods, and reorienting manufacturing as a service network for rapid interaction.
Develop medical technologies and digital tools to improve detection, monitoring and patient care – for example through the development of new diagnostic devices faster, cheaper and easier (including remotely) as well as new technologies to protect healthcare workers. 
Analysis of behavioural and socio-economic impacts of government and public health responses, for example, on mental health, including gender aspects of risk factors and socio-economic burden, to develop comprehensive guidance for policy makers and health authorities and to enhance preparedness for similar events in the future.
Learn from large groups of patients (cohorts) by linking existing groups in the EU and beyond to assess their exposure to certain risk factors in order to better understand the possible causes of the disease in order to improve the response to the virus and future public health threats.
Strengthen cooperation between eu and international cohorts through network research institutions that collect patient care data to enable studies on patient characteristics, risk factors, safety and effectiveness of treatments and potential strategies against coronary virus. 

Background

This second emergency request for expression of interest, launched by the Commission on 19 May 2020, gave researchers with little less than four weeks to prepare collaborative research projects. Mobilize the research community quickly. The implementation of research proposals was accelerated through the evaluation by independent experts, which enabled the Commission to draw up a shortlist of a number of projects of excellent scientific quality and potential impact. Although funding is conditional on a final decision by the Committee and the signing of the Horizon 2020 grant agreement, research teams can already begin their work.

The committee's recommendations are based on the principle of "the right to be a member of the Council" and the "right to be" and "the right to a right".

This new special appeal under Horizon 2020 complements previous actions to support 18 projects worth €48.2 million for the development of diagnosis, treatments, vaccines and epidemic preparedness, as well as €117 million invested in 8 diagnostic and treatment projects through the Innovative Medicines Initiative and measures to support innovative ideas through the European Innovation Council. The Commission is implementing Action 3 of the ERAvsCorona Action Plan, a working document resulting from dialogues between the Commission and national institutions.
