Results of special coronavirus research and innovation call have been published


On 22 July 2021, the Commission published the short-listed 11 new projects for supporting and enabling urgent research into the coronavirus and its variants. The successful projects involve 312 research teams from 40 countries, including 38 participants from 23 countries outside of the EU. The Czech Republic is represented in two selected projects - ISIDORe and BY-COVID. The selected projects will receive funding of 120 million euros from the Horizon Europe, specifically from the HERA Incubator initiative.

Most of the projects will support clinical trials for new treatments and vaccines, as well as the development of large scale, coronavirus cohorts and networks beyond Europe's borders, forging links with European initiatives. Other projects will reinforce and widen access to the research infrastructures providing services, or needed to share data, expertise, and research resources among researchers, to enable research addressing coronavirus and its variants.
