Scope of PREPARE

PREPARE, the Platform foR European Preparedness Against (Re-)emerging Epidemics, is a EU funded network for harmonized large-scale clinical research studies on infectious diseases (IDs), prepared to rapidly respond to any severe ID outbreak, providing real-time evidence for clinical management of patients and for informing public health responses. ‘Inter-epidemic’ clinical studies will train PREPARE in mounting a rapid, coordinated deployment of Europe’s clinical investigators. As such, PREPARE aims to be at the basis of establishing a paradigm shift in clinical research in response to severe ID outbreaks.


PREPARE is funded by the European Commission’s FP7 Programme under grant agreement No. 602525.
