World Experts and Funders Set Priorities for COVID-19 Research
February 2020 News release Geneva ----Leading health experts from around the
world have been meeting at the World Health Organization’s Geneva headquarters
to assess the current level of knowledge about the new COVID-19 disease,
identify gaps and work together to accelerate and fund priority research needed
to help stop this outbreak and prepare for any future outbreaks.
During the meeting, the more than 300 scientists and researchers participating both in person and virtually agreed on a set of global research priorities. They also outlined mechanisms for continuing scientific interactions and collaborations beyond the meeting which will be coordinated and facilitated by WHO. They worked with research funders to determine how necessary resources can be mobilized so that critical research can start immediately.
The deliberations will form the basis of a research and innovation roadmap charting all the research needed and this will be used by researchers and funders to accelerate the research response.
