The World Health Organisation (“WHO”) recently declared COVID-19 a pandemic.
European institutions are thus pulling out the stops to gain a greater understanding of the virus, above all to help develop clinical and public health measures to improve patient health and contain the spread of COVID-19.
In fact, the European Commission is providing funding of up to EUR 45 m for the Innovative Medicines Initiative’s fast track call for research proposals in response to the spread of COVID-19. The main aim is to contribute to effective patient management and to boost public resources to counter current and future outbreaks.
