This project aims to build a multidisciplinary research network able to deliver vaccine candidates, methods, procedures eligible for clinical trials with a special focus on prevention this disease. Thanks to the background, unique facilities and tools available among the consortium participants, it will deliver tools for countering the threat of this infection in Europe and in endemic areas of the world.
This work program will fill gaps in CCHF virus research on immunology and vaccinology. The outcome of this multidisciplinary research project will include novel and new vaccine candidates.
This project will also address the bottleneck for vaccine development for viral emerging epidemics. It will also focus on strengthening the research potential, by promoting excellence of research, training and capacity building and by increasing visibility and awareness of the disease in endemic areas of Europe.
