HaDEA has launched a new action grant under the EU4Health programme to support the European Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Authority (HERA).
Stemming from the COVID-19 crisis, this action supports one of the EU4Health programme priorities to protect European citizens from serious cross-border health threats and strengthen the responsiveness of health systems to cope with these.
The action grant aims to establish a pilot network of top-class laboratories and research institutes with the expertise and capacities to support HERA in identifying emergent pathogens and ensuring the availability of medical countermeasures for improved health preparedness and response. In a health emergency outbreak, the network will have to support HERA in providing a timely, targeted, and tailored input on the identified health threat.
All interested parties are invited to send their applications by 18 August 2022, 17:00 (CEST).
Budget: € 25 000 000
An information session on the action grant took place last 10 June 2022.
HaDEA, with the participation of Directorate-General HERA, presented the policy context, objectives and expected impact, as well as the procedure for this action grant.
