A building closed in Ireland due to the pandemic situation.

"The European Commission has mobilised another €122 million from its research and innovation programme, Horizon 2020, for urgently needed research into the coronavirus. The new call for expressions of interest contributes to the Commission's €1.4 billion pledge to the Coronavirus Global Response initiative, launched by President Ursula von der Leyen on 4 May 2020".

According to the European Commission, "the projects funded under this call should repurpose manufacturing for rapid production of vital medical supplies and equipment needed for testing, treatment and prevention, as well as develop medical technologies and digital tools to improve detection, surveillance and patients care". The objective will be to achieve a better understanding of the socio-economic impacts of this outbreak. The deadline for submission is 11 June 2020.
