The Prometeus RISE Consortium is searching for questions to address, within the scope of its scientific project, to contribute with its complementary expertise to scientific and technological research on Covid-19.
In doing so we are joining the efforts of the European Commission that promotes a synergistic approach to solve global challenges: togethr we are stronger.
The European Commission has been at the forefront of supporting research and innovation and coordinating European and global research efforts, including preparedness for pandemics.
In addition to a number of past and ongoing research actions related to coronaviruses and outbreaks, the Commission launched several special actions in 2020.
These actions address epidemiology, preparedness and response to outbreaks, the development of diagnostics, treatments and vaccines, as well as the infrastructures and resources that enable this research.
The Commission and national ministries have also agreed on the first ERAvsCorona action plan which lays out 10 priority short-term coordinated actions to tackle coronavirus.
The European Commission has made a significant contribution to the Coronavirus Global Response pledge with €1 billion mobilised by Horizon 2020.
To fight the coronavirus, the world urgently needs effective and safe diagnostics, treatments and vaccines – without these we ALL remain vulnerable.
The crisis requires a response of unprecedented scale, speed and solidarity – the global research and innovation community is already mobilised but we need to do more.
Together, we are stronger: EU research and innovation brings Europe’s leading scientists and innovators together to coordinate efforts across the EU and beyond to tackle the coronavirus crisis.
