Call for EC Funded Commissioned Research for SMEs and Public Health Organizations

Support for Vaccine Development

Deadline: Friday 6 May 2016 5:00 p.m. CET

Commissioned research for European Small and Medium size Enterprises (SME) and Public Health Organizations

The ADITEC project is looking to support SMEs and Public Health Organizations from within or outside the ADITEC consortium in vaccine development work that will result in public health benefit. We are actively seeking research proposals clearly aimed at vaccine development, where specific support can be requested in the areas listed below. These services are offered by current ADITEC consortium partners and are available free of charge to the requesting SME or Public Health Organization, upon approval of the proposal.

A total of 670,000 Euros from ADITEC funding was allocated and up to 100 k€ may be requested per project. The ADITEC project will reimburse the service-providing ADITEC partners directly; no funds will be distributed to the SME or public health organization requesting and receiving the service. There will be no cost to the awarded SME or public health organization for the service provided. Resulting IP will be owned by the SME or Public Health Organization receiving the service, and maybe shared with the ADITEC partner(s) performing the research. It will be expected that results of the “commissioned research work” will be made available to European users, and the ADITEC support will be acknowledged.
