Focus area 1: Predictive diagnostics and treatment
Research in this focus area concerns the (further) development of (predictive) diagnostics for individualised treatment and for the prevention of COVID-19-related symptoms in the early, acute and recovery phases. It concerns research that is urgently needed into new or existing therapies and their modes of action, and on obtaining insight into, amongst other things, the microbiome, immunity, predictive parameters and individualised treatment.
The focus area has four themes:
Diagnostics of infection
Risk analysis and prognostics
Virus, immunity, immune response and pathogenesis
Focus area 2: Care and prevention
The emphasis within this focus area lies on obtaining insights and lessons learned that contribute to an improved, substantiated response towards the current pandemic, and the safeguarding of these improved approaches and processes in the care system of the future. Various types of research are possible: evaluation pathways, action research, effect studies, facilitation pathways, efficacy research in the case of postponement of treatment/avoidance of care, organisation of care issues, development of epidemiological models, and inventories.
To achieve this, collaboration between research groups, disciplines and relevant stakeholders is the starting point for obtaining these insights in an efficient manner and for realising an adequate preparation for a future pandemic.
The focus area has three themes:
Organisation of care and prevention
Care and prevention for vulnerable citizens
Transmission and epidemiology
A maximum of € 15,000,000 is available for this subsidy round, of which € 8,500,000 for focus area 1 and € 6,500,000 for focus area 2.
A maximum of € 500,000 is available per project.
