Call for Proposals

Vaccine development against prioritized epidemic infectious diseases

CEPI is launching its call for proposals (CfP), open to all types of organisations able to advance vaccine candidates from the late pre-clinical stage through to Phase II for:

  • MERS
  • Lassa
  • Nipah

More information on the priority diseases is available here.

The deadline has closed for questions related to the current Call for Proposals on Lassa, MERS and Nipah viruses.

Application process

To facilitate a rapid launch of the first Call for proposal, the CEPI secretariat is collaborating with the Research Council of Norway (RCN) by using their established online application system for submissions.

Please note that:

  • Only proposal forms and related documents submitted through this system will be considered.
  • The guidelines provided in the online application form can deviate from CEPIs requirements, therefore we ask applicants to follow¬†the online application form guidelines.
  • CEPI encourages applicants to familiarise themselves with the online application portal in the weeks leading up to the deadline so applications are submitted as smoothly as possible.
  • The deadline is definite and the portal will not allow submission after the CfP deadline.

Here you can access the CEPI online application form:
