Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) - Scope
Will EDCTP under its second programme support early clinical development work such as clinical grade product development, manufacture of clinical grade materials, or early phase I clinical trials of vaccines and products?
Pre-clinical development cannot be supported by EDCTP. EDCTP only supports phase I to IV clinical trials. The grant that EDCTP provides, in case a proposal is successful, can be used in part to cover the costs associated with manufacturing a product that is necessary to conduct the clinical trial (phase I and beyond), on the condition that accounting conditions for recognising expenditures are met. Under no circumstances can any (manufacturing) cost incurred before the start of the EDCTP-funded project, be counted as cofunding to the project (in case cofunding is requested). Requests for funding of early pre-clinical work can, for example, be directed to other Horizon2020 programmes. Nike LeBron 16
What are the differences between the currently open call ‘Strategic actions supporting large scale trials’, and the already closed call?
What are the differences between the currently open call ‘Strategic actions supporting large scale trials’, and the already closed call ‘Diagnostic tools for poverty-related diseases’, also a RIA action with two stages?
The ‘Strategic actions’ call supports clinical research activities which are part of a large-scale clinical trial that has the potential to achieve rapid advances in the clinical development of new or improved medical interventions against poverty-related and neglected infectious diseases. In short, the ‘Strategic actions’ call focuses on large-scale clinical trials. The ‘Diagnostics’ call is intended to fund projects that aim to validate the clinical performance and/or implementation of new or improved diagnostic tools and technologies for the detection of any of the PRDs (including as co-infections).

It can be considered if it is presented as comorbidity with a poverty-related infectious disease within the remit of the call.
EDCTP provides funding for research on infectious diseases, especially poverty-related and neglected and/or emergent infectious diseases prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa.Nike Running
