PREPARE (Platform for European Preparedness Against (Re-)emerging Epidemics) is an EU funded network for harmonised large-scale clinical research studies on infectious diseases, prepared to rapidly respond to any severe ID outbreak, providing real-time evidence for clinical management of patients and for informing public health responses.
PREPARE is funded by the European Commission's FP7 Programme under grant number 602525. PREPARE has formally commenced its activities on 1 February 2014.
