European Commission Research in Neglected Infectious Diseases

Research into neglected infectious diseases is included in the European Commission's seventh framework programme (FP7, 2007-2013) as one of four pillars in infectious diseases research.

The aim is to address research gaps and priority areas for neglected infectious diseases through genomic and post-genomic research at the European level, and with the ultimate goal of developing new prophylactics (vaccines), treatments, diagnostics or control tools for neglected infectious diseases.

The collaboration between European scientists and scientists in disease endemic countries is highly prioritised, as is the involvement of industry, public-private partnerships and non-governmental organisations.
