[afro-nets] Announcement of 2016 EDCTP calls for proposals

In 2016, EDCTP will launch nine calls for proposals to support clinical 
research and related activities. These calls are worth approximately €138.6M in 
research against poverty-related and neglected infectious diseases.

The launch of these calls follows from the approval of the EDCTP work plan for 
2016 by the European Commission and the General Assembly of the EDCTP 
Association.

Proposals are invited for the following topics:

Vaccines for poverty-related diseases (PRDs)

The purpose of this call is to support large-scale collaborative projects which 
include one or more clinical trials (phase I to IV) aiming to accelerate the 
clinical development of new vaccines (preventive or therapeutic) against one of 
the PRDs. Applications must include at least one clinical trial which will be 
carried out in sub-Saharan Africa to test the safety, immunogenicity and/or 
efficacy of the vaccine(s).

Call budget: € 70M
Maximum funding: € 15M
Funding level: 100% of eligible costs

Research and clinical management of patients in PRD epidemics in sub-Saharan 
Africa

This call for proposals aims to support the establishment of a 
multidisciplinary consortium able to provide accelerated evidence for the 
optimal clinical management of patients and for guiding the public health 
response to any severe infectious outbreak caused by pathogens within the scope 
of the EDCTP programme with pandemic potential or that may cause significant 
damage to health and socio-economics in Africa (including 
antimicrobial-resistant pathogens).

Based on a comprehensive 'inter-epidemic' work programme, the consortium should 
ensure preparedness to perform coordinated large-scale multi-site clinical 
studies in response to an emerging threat. These clinical trials could include 
studies evaluating potential preventive or therapeutic interventions in a 
community or health-care setting; validation of diagnostic devices and 
observational clinical studies aimed at establishing the natural history and 
determinants of severity of the disease.

Call budget: € 10M
