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.

Watch the following video to know more about why clinical research is important in the event of an ID outbreak and what PREPARE is about.

Do you want to alert PREPARE to an ID threat?

PREPARE is triggered when a formal request to respond to a specific threat is sent to PREPARE’s Outbreak Mode Committee. If you have credible information about unusual infectious disease activity that you consider poses a threat to Europe, requiring a clinical research response, then you can submit a trigger request.
