Following the Flash call launched in March 2020, the ANR is launching a new call for Research-Action projects on Covid-19 (coronavirus disease 2019). Open continuously until 28 October 2020 and focused on WHO recommendations, this call aims to support rapidly the scientific communities mobilized on Covid-19 in an emergency context.
The RA-COVID-19 call will be conducted in close collaboration with the 'Comité d'Analyse Recherche Expertise' (CARE) COVID-19, the multidisciplinary consortium REACTing (REsearch and ACTion targeting emerging infectious diseases) coordinated by Inserm under the aegis of AVIESAN and many other stakeholders providing their scientific and financial contributions.
This call aims to complement the initial action of Flash COVID-19 and addresses the following five priorities: 1) Epidemiological studies; 2) Physiopathogenesis of the disease; 3) Infection prevention and control; 4) Ethics and social dynamics; and 5) Global issues of the Covid-19 epidemic.
