CEPI’s Innovations to Prepare for Future Epidemics and Pandemics Call for Proposals aims to support CEPI’s mission by advancing a broad range of vaccine innovations for pathogens with epidemic or pandemic potential, including novel pathogens capable of infecting and causing disease in humans (i.e., Disease X).
It will support vaccine research, development and manufacturing innovations for CEPI’s priority pathogens and contribute towards the 100 Days Mission, thereby helping the world prepare for known and future epidemic and pandemic threats.
Through the Innovations to Prepare for Future Epidemics and Pandemics Call for Proposals CEPI will advance cutting-edge vaccine development and manufacturing science and technologies that will contribute to speed, scale and equitable access during future outbreak response. It initially invites applications across three Focus Areas:
Focus Area 1: advancing innovative rapid-response vaccine platforms that can transform the response to a future Disease X.
Focus Area 2: developing new vaccine candidates against CEPI priority pathogens with epidemic or pandemic potential and viral families.
Focus Area 3: advancing manufacturing innovations that improve vaccine scalability and equitable access.
CEPI welcomes proposals for Focus Areas 1 and 2 on a rolling basis through 2026. Proposals for Focus Area 3 can be submitted through 12 February 2024. Call deadlines may be subject to amendment.
Additional Focus Areas may be introduced and updated over time as R&D gaps and needs are identified and addressed. Potential applicants should check back periodically for updates to Focus Areas. All proposals submitted as part of this Call will undergo an accelerated review process.
Please read detailed Call for Proposals texts for further information and details on how to apply.
Potential applicants should review the relevant Focus Area for detailed information about project eligibility, application templates and submission/review timelines. Prior to submitting an application, CEPI strongly encourages you to contact the team at email@example.com to discuss your product, technology or innovation and confirm your proposed project is aligned with the current needs and priorities of one or more Focus Areas.
