The European Union and its partners launched a coronavirus global response effort on 4 May.
The aim of the conference is to raise €7.5bn to develop diagnostics, treatments and vaccines and deploy them to every corner of the world at an affordable price.
- To fight the coronavirus, the world urgently needs effective and safe diagnostics, treatments and vaccines - without these we all remain vulnerable.
- The European Commission has made a significant contribution to the Coronavirus Global Response pledge with €1 billion mobilised by Horizon 2020
- Together, we are stronger: EU research and innovation brings Europe’s leading scientists and innovators together to coordinate efforts across the EU and beyond to tackle the coronavirus crisis
- The crisis requires a response of unprecedented scale, speed and solidarity - the global research and innovation community is already mobilised but we need to do more
- We are committed to continuing to support our researchers and innovators in these critical times
