The European Commission set up a Manifesto with the aim of maximising the accessibility of research results in the fight against COVID-19.
The Manifesto is part of the EU Coronavirus response, the common European response to the coronavirus outbreak. It provides guiding principles for beneficiaries of EU research grants for coronavirus prevention, testing, treatment and vaccination to ensure that their research results will be accessible for all and guarantee a return on public investment. This will aim to ensure that no one is left behind in the fight against Covid-19, and that solutions will be developed, produced and deployed to every single corner of the world.
The Manifesto seeks the voluntary support and endorsement from public and private stakeholders benefitting from EU funding, as well as from other research funders and prominent institutions. The Commission is proud of the support received so far (you can find an updated list of organisations that already endorsed the Manifesto here).
By signing, we agreed to and endorsed the principles below when dealing with research results stemming from EU funded research grants related to COVID-19 on prevention, testing, treatment and vaccination:
