    The EC provides a draft charter on the Global Research Collaboration for Infectious Disease Preparedness (GloPID-R) initiative related to the programme Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing.

    The goal of topic HCO 4-2014 is to support the implementation of GloPID-R.  GloPID-R aims at facilitating an effective research response within 48 hours of a significant outbreak of a new or re-emerging infectious disease with pandemic potential, in order to save lives and economies worldwide. To achieve this goal the GloPID-R brings together funding bodies investing in research related to new or re-emerging infectious diseases to ensure that research capacity and capabilities are in place to support the conduct of scientific research.

    GloPID–R represents a network of funding organisations.
