Call for Proposals

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is a public health crisis causing unprecedented disruption to human activity. As national and regional governments assess containment measures, only widely available safe and effective vaccines, used in conjunction with other public health measures, will allow a return to normal life and help stop further loss of life and its devastating social and economic impact.

In response to the global pandemic, CEPI is expanding and diversifying its COVID-19 vaccine portfolio to increase our chances of finding a successful vaccine which can be manufactured at scale. CEPI has opened this additional funding opportunity to accelerate the development of safe and effective vaccines by organisations who can rapidly deliver at scale and to ensure that the supply of vaccine doses is made available to meet the public health need on a worldwide basis during the pandemic.

Vaccine developers with end-to-end experience and capability for the global supply of COVID-19 vaccine doses in 12-18 months are encouraged to apply.

The new call will look more favourably on vaccine candidates that, based on field experience to date, have indications that their candidate vaccine is able to offer measurable protection after one dose. 

This is an extension of CEPI’s second COVID-19 vaccine Call for Proposals launched in May 2020 (the first Call was issued in February 2020).
