This competition opened on 23 January 2017 and is now closed for registrations.
The Department of Health is to invest up to £35 million in projects to develop new vaccines against infectious diseases.
This competition aims to support the clinical development of candidate vaccines against 12 diseases. The UK Vaccine Network has identified these diseases as a priority because they have the potential to cause epidemics in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
The competition is a single stage. It covers carrying out clinical development of vaccines up to and including phase IIb trials. We expect that individual contracts will be valued up to £3 million. Projects should last between 24 and 36 months.
