The European Commission launched a new European Research Area. The platform is a one-stop- shop providing information, dedicated support and real-time updates on funding opportunities for coronavirus related research and innovation, both EU and national. It also provides links to tailored Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for calls and grants affected by the coronavirus.
Also, the European Institute of Innovation and Technology(EIT) launched the EIT Crisis Response Initiative supporting innovative solutions for social and economic recovery, with a budget of €60 million. Through this initiative, the EIT makes available €60 million in additional funding to help innovators generate high-impact solutions that address the unprecedented challenges presented by the crisis.
