Synergies with CEPI: In order to fully address the objectives of the IMI2 Ebola+ programme as a programmatic approach addressing different challenges across the entire innovation cycle and aiming at leveraging input and multi-disciplinary expertise across stakeholders, potential applicants are also strongly encouraged to consider the opportunities offered through the Call for proposals that will be launched in parallel by the CEPI alliance (Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations). In line with the IMI2 - Call 8 topic text, this would offer the foundation for constructive synergies and complementarities with other projects and initiatives focusing on preparedness to react to future outbreaks of Ebola and other filoviral haemorrhagic fevers. This would also avoid duplication of efforts and to create collaboration at a global level to maximise European added value in health research.
