Emergency funding of COVID-19 research among EDCTP 2020 calls for proposals
Today, EDCTP is publishing seven 2020 calls for proposals to support clinical research on poverty-related diseases, including neglected infectious diseases, and research capacity development in sub-Saharan Africa. The calls represent an investment of more than €80 million.
The first call to open is the Mobilisation of funding for COVID-19 research in sub-Saharan Africa. The emergency funding initiative which is open to applications from 03 April and closes on 17 April 2020, is part of the European response to the COVID-19 emergency.
