Commission launches new website on COVID-19 research

The first section describes actions which were set up to deal with the current outbreak of the novel coronavirus, e.g. the call ‚Advancing knowledge for the clinical and public health response to the [COVID-19] epidemic' with a budget of €47.5 million and the IMI call for proposals. The second section informs on EU investments into research to prepare for this type of public health emergency as well as setting emergency research funding mechanisms.
