On behalf of the European Research Infrastructure on Highly Pathogenic Agents (ERINHA), which coordinates the EU-funded large-scale project ISIDORe (Integrated Services for Infectious Disease Outbreak Research). ISIDORe is a unique initiative entirely dedicated to free-of-charge access provision to its 154 members’ state-of-the-art facilities, cutting-edge services, equipment and technologies to advance research on epidemic-prone pathogens.
The scientific communities of the University of Ionnina can benefit from these opportunities and we would be grateful if you could inform them by disseminating the following information.
ISIDORe preparedness calls for proposals
Following its rapid research response calls for proposals dedicated to SARS-CoV-2 (still open) and Monkeypox virus (deadline expired), ISIDORe (Integrated Services for Infectious Disease Outbreak Research) has launched its preparedness programme calls for proposals for free of charge access to the consortium facilities and services.
To prevent future pandemics, and advance the development of the appropriate medical countermeasures, the ISIDORe preparedness programme includes a list of priority preparedness pathogens clustered in four calls for proposals to support research on the epidemic-prone pathogens such as Risk-Group 4 pathogens (Ebola virus, Marburg virus, Nipah virus, Hendra virus, Lassa virus, “New world arenaviruses”, CCHF virus); Respiratory Pathogens (zoonotic betacoronaviruses, Influenza A, Y. Pestis, M. Tuberculosis/bovis, C. burnetii ); Vector-borne Pathogens (Rift valley fever virus, Zika virus, Chikungunya virus, West Nile virus, Dengue virus, Japanese encephalitis virus, Yellow fever virus, Tick-borne encephalitis virus, Plasmodium, B. burgdorferi, Leishmania); and other pathogens with epidemic potential (pathogen X, Orthopoxviruses, Non polio enteroviruses, Polio enteroviruses).
More information about the calls and how to apply can be found here
The recording and presentations of the Information Webinar held on 29 November 2022 and dedicated to the Preparedness calls for proposals (RG4 pathogens, Respiratory pathogens, Vector-borne pathogens, Pathogen X) are now available online.
