EDCTP – Danish participation

The European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) is a public-public partnership between countries in Europe and sub-Saharan Africa, and the European Union.

EDCTP aims to support collaborative research that accelerates the clinical development of new or improved interventions to prevent or treat HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected infectious diseases in sub-Saharan Africa. The second EDCTP programme is implemented as part of the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon 2020. The European Union will provide a contribution of up to € 683 million for the 10-year programme (2014-2024), provided this is matched by contributions from the European Participating States.

Information on funding opportunities within the EDCTP can be found here!

Denmark is actively supporting EDCTP through co-labelled contributions from Statens Serum Institut, The Ministry of Higher Education, University of Copenhagen and Danida (through co-funding).
