IMI2 - Call 21 on the development of therapeutics and diagnostics combatting coronavirus infections is a single stage Call for proposals.

  • development of antivirals as well as other types of therapeutics to address a rapid response to the current COVID-19 outbreak;
  • development of therapeutics to address the current and/or future coronavirus outbreaks;
  • development of diagnostics, ensuring rapid evaluation of candidates based on existing technologies;
  • development of fast and reliable tools that go beyond the state of the art for detection of COVID-19 carriers and symptomatic individuals suspected of COVID-19 infection.

Preventive vaccines are specifically excluded from the scope of the Call.

Proposals must be submitted via the electronic submission system of the Funding and Tenders Portal.
