The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) announced the CEPI’s Open Calls for Proposals in partnership with the Department of Biotechnology (DBT) is a global alliance between public, private, philanthropic, and civil society organizations to accelerate the development of vaccines against emerging infectious diseases and enable equitable access to these vaccines for affected populations during outbreaks.
CEPI’s Open Calls for Proposals
In partnership with CEPI, the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), initiated the implementation of the Ind-CEPI Mission entitled “Epidemic preparedness through rapid vaccine development: Support of Indian vaccine development aligned with the global initiative of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI)”.
From time to time, CEPI issues call for proposals inviting applicants to submit funding
proposals for projects to develop specific vaccine candidates or research that can directly support vaccine development.
CEPI has recently issued the following Calls for Proposals:
RNA vaccine platform technologies and vaccine library development against emerging and select endemic infectious diseases, Focus Area-2 (open until December 31, 2022)
Innovative technologies to improve vaccine thermostability (open until December 31, 2022)
State-of-the-Art Immunogen Design using Computational Antigen Simulation Technologies for Vaccine Development Against Emerging Infectious Diseases (open until July 31, 2022).
The Department of Biotechnology solicits participation of Indian scientists/vaccine
developers, for submission of applications to CEPI under the call. Kindly visit the CEPI
website for more information related to these calls and guidelines: CEPI
