The Commission has launched new calls that complement earlier actions to develop treatments and vaccines by organising and conducting clinical trials to advance the development of promising therapeutics and vaccines against SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19. They will support the development of large scale, COVID-19 cohorts and networks beyond Europe’s borders, forging links with European initiatives, as well as reinforce the infrastructures needed to share data, expertise, research resources and expert services among researchers and research organisations.

The calls will open on 13th April and will close on 6th May 2021.

The Calls are as follows:

These emergency calls will tackle the short to medium-term threat and simultaneously prepare for the future. They will contribute to building the European Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Authority (HERA), which will enable the EU to anticipate and better tackle future pandemics.

If you would like to apply for these calls please contact our Health Contact Points : Kay Duggan-Walls at Health Research Board, email:, Mobile: 085 8868183 or Martha Cahill at Enterprise Ireland, Email:, Mobile: 087 2868920
