CEPI’s Open Calls for Proposals


CEPI’s Open Calls for Proposals

The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) is a global alliance between public, private, philanthropic, and civil society organizations to accelerate the development of vaccines against emerging infectious diseases and enable equitable
access to these vaccines for affected populations during outbreaks.

In partnership with CEPI, Department of Biotechnology (DBT), initiated the implementation of the Ind-CEPI Mission entitled “Epidemic preparedness through rapid vaccine development: Support of Indian vaccine development aligned with the global
initiative of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI)”.

From time to time, CEPI issues calls for proposals inviting applicants to submit funding proposals for projects to develop specific vaccine candidates or research that can directly support vaccine development.

CEPI has recently issued the following Calls for Proposals:
 RNA vaccine platform technologies and vaccine library development against
emerging and select endemic infectious diseases, Focus Area-2 (open until
December 31, 2022)
 Innovative technologies to improve vaccine thermostability (open until December
31, 2022)
 State-of the-Art Immunogen Design using Computational Antigen Simulation
Technologies for Vaccine Development Against Emerging Infectious Diseases
(open until July 31, 2022).

The Department of Biotechnology solicits participation of Indian scientists/vaccine
developers, for submission of applications to CEPI under the call. Kindly visit the CEPI
website for more information related to these calls and
