Type of event EDCTP meeting
Scope Call for proposal; Lassa Fever vaccines

The Joint EDCTP-CEPI Lassa Fever Vaccines Call with a budget of €40 million aims to support distinct strategic actions (clinical research activities) which are part of efforts to prepare and conduct a large-scale clinical trial that has the potential to achieve proof of concept and/or the demonstration of pivotal efficacy of novel candidate vaccines against LASV.

As EDCTP and CEPI streamline their processes and procedures in selecting, funding and monitoring the future large-scale Lassa vaccine trials, it is important for those preparing proposals to have a good understanding of the requirements set by both funders.

27 Jan 2020 at 2:00 PM (Amsterdam time), EDCTP and CEPI will hold an Online Information Meeting for potential applicants to this Joint EDCTP-CEPI Lassa Fever Vaccines Call.

The Meeting will include:

  1. Presentations by EDCTP and CEPI, covering the following:
  • Application process;
  • Evaluation procedures;
  • Grant preparation process; and

  1. Q&A session based on questions sent prior to/or raised during the meeting.
