Coronavirus: Commission launches one-stop shop for coronavirus research and innovation funding

The European Commission launched the new European Research Area (ERA) corona platform. The platform provides useful information, dedicated support and real-time updates on funding opportunities for coronavirus related research and innovation.

Since the Covid-19 outbreak, the scientific community is facing unprecedented challenges in the search for solutions against coronavirus. Good coordination and quick mobilisation of funds are essential to help our researchers and innovators meet those challenges. Therefore, the European Commission has launched the ERA corona platform, a one-stop shop for information for current and prospective beneficiaries of the R&I Programmes.

The ERA corona platform brings together information on funded and ongoing projects, updated information on the extension of H2020 call deadlines and links to tailored Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for calls and grants affected by the coronavirus.

Part of a larger coordination effort between the EU and European countries, the platform maintains a dedicated section for national activities, including funding opportunities, initiatives and projects in the Member States and other European countries.

The ERA corona platform is accessible via the Funding & Tenders Portal.
