ERINHA-Advance TNA call for proposals

*SHORTER AND EASIER APPLICATION PROCESS*
Apply & get free of charge transnational access to ERINHA services
to advance your research on SARS CoV 2

With the pandemic still ongoing, ERINHA is renewing once more its commitment to supporting scientific Users by extending ERINHA-Advance TNA activities and launching an impact driven 3rd call for proposals still dedicated to SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19, with a special emphasis on variants of concern.
* Free of charge transnational access includes administrative & logistical support, remote use of ERINHA high containment facilities, and technical & scientific support.

SCOPE

Your application for free of charge TNA to ERINHA services may request in vitro and/or in vivo high containment services for supporting and advancing your research in one of the main following areas:

SARS-CoV-2 diagnosis (e.g., innovative technologies, improvement of existing methods, etc.);
Vaccine against SARS-CoV-2;
Therapeutics with direct anti-SARS-CoV-2 effects, including new or repurposed drugs; monoclonal antibodies, synthetic antibodies, etc.;
Pathophysiology of field variants in target cells, virus-host interactions, elicited immune responses;
Transmission characteristics of field variants, including in animal models.

We will prioritize fairly advanced projects (i.e., with robust proof of concept evidence) in need of specific and focused services such as: an in vivo efficacy study using COVID-19 disease model, a specific immunological analysis, an in vitro study using air/liquid interface epithelial airway models, a low-scale screening of antivirals, etc. Exploratory projects are out of scope.

Topics of high interest include but are not limited to :
• Vaccine responses (e.g., hetero- vs. homologous boost);
• Confirming the efficacy of candidate anti-SARS-CoV-2 medical countermeasures;
• Improving saliva or swab-based diagnostics;
• Any project with a high-probability of short-term impact in need of access to high containment facilities.
Please note that, due to the current circumstances, we will only provide remote access to ERINHA services (see ERINHA Advance TNA Programme Guidelines).

DEADLINE

ERINHA-Advance TNA budget has been topped up; this call for proposals will remain open as long as funds remain available. Your proposal will be evaluated, selected and implemented on a rolling basis.

APPLICATION

We will select projects based on peer review through a fast track evaluation procedure.
Applicants can be affiliated to an organization (public or private) located in the EU, an associated country or any other country.
