Funding – 2020

Flash call COVID-19

The ANR is launching a call for projects with an accelerated process of evaluation and selection on COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) responsible for an epidemic which started at the end of 2019 and caused by the pathogenic agent coronavirus SAR-CoV-2. With an initial budget of € 3 million and targeted on four priorities identified by the WHO, this Flash call aims to rapidly support the scientific communities mobilized on COVID-19.

The ANR’s specific funding instrument, the Flash call, is based on an accelerated device that allows the selection and funding of proposals within a short period of time without departing from the principles of peer review.

With an initial budget of € 3 million, the Flash COVID-19 call aims to rapidly support the scientific communities mobilized on COVID-19. It complements the actions already launched by the multidisciplinary REACTing consortium (REsearch and ACTion targeting emerging infectious diseases) coordinated by Inserm under the aegis of AVIESAN.

The Flash call COVID-19 is targeted on four priorities identified by the WHO : 1) epidemiological and translational studies; 2) the pathophysiology of the disease (not including vaccines); 3) infection prevention and control measures in the healthcare setting (including the best ways to protect health workers) and in community settings; 4) Ethics and the humanities and social sciences associated with the response.

Modalities and details on priority themes in the call for projects.
