The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations

The EU intensifies global cooperation initiatives in research and innovation

To face the spreading of the coronavirus the EU is intensifying its global efforts, joining forces with partner countries to find solutions, and maximizing access to the latest scientific knowledge and international value chains.

Supporting research is one of the 3 pillars of the EU’s global response to the coronavirus crisis as set out by the European Commission and the High Representative on 8 April.

The EU is supporting the global response to COVID-19 both through multilateral platforms and Horizon 2020 projects. The response includes the following 3 initiatives:

  • The Global Research Collaboration for Infectious Disease Preparedness (GLoPID-R) network
  • The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI)
  • The European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP)
