This call (SU-DRS02-2018-2019-2020), which aims to develop new technologies for the rapid and accurate detection of pathogens, belongs to the Secure societies – Protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens sub-programme of the Horizon 2020 Programme.
Resilience is essential if authorities are to take appropriate action in response to major disasters, both natural (including climate-related extreme events) and man-made. Innovation for disaster-resilient societies can be based on novel technologies, provided they are affordable, accepted by citizens, and adapted and implemented to the (cross-sectoral) needs of immediate intervention teams.
Proposals are invited to propose novel solutions to improve the protection of first responders from multiple and unexpected hazards, or to strengthen their capabilities by addressing, in particular, research and innovation issues for rapid and accurate detection of pathogens.
Rapid response teams need new technologies for the rapid and accurate detection of pathogens, as well as tools for the joint assessment and investigation of epidemiological and criminal risks and threats.
