ISIDORe Launches Its Website and First Call Dedicated To SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19

Published 7 June 2022

The Integrated Services for Infectious Disease Research (ISIDORe) consortium is pleased to announce the launch of its website: EATRIS is a proud partner of the EU/HERA-funded large-scale project, which assembles a One Health-driven, integrated portfolio of cutting-edge research services and resources, ranging from the most fundamental to the most applied, dedicated to the study of epidemic-prone diseases including coronaviruses.

The website showcases information about ISIDORe’s mission, actions and partners, and more importantly about the ISIDORe service catalogue and open calls for free of charge access to the large variety of scientific resources and installations. The brand visuals and colour scheme are inspired by the pandemic preparedness colour scheme and epidemic waves. The overall website structure has been designed in a user-friendly manner to enable researchers and potential users to easily find the necessary information on the research resources and services we offer, open calls, conditions to access the facilities and application modes.

SARS-COV-2 & COVID-19 call

With the website launch, ISIDORe consortium has also announced the project’s first call: SARS-COV-2 & COVID-19. The first call is divided into six main sections which are: Surveillance & Epidemic Risk Management; Understanding SARS-CoV-2 & Covid-19; Diagnostics; Therapeutics; Vaccines; and Social Sciences & Epidemiology. The call is multidisciplinary and open to all scientists both from academia and the private sector. The users wishing to benefit from the support of ISIDORe are requested to submit proposals that will be evaluated based on their feasibility and scientific merit (independent peer review).

ISIDORe is a very new type of action that is almost entirely dedicated to providing support to scientific communities, and as such, the overall consortium and the ISIDORe management team welcome the users’ feedback on website functionality and potential new needs to be highlighted.
