ISIDORe - Integrated services for infectious disease outbreak research


Duration: 02.2022 – 01.2025

Funding: EU, Horizon Europe

The ISIDORe project (Integrated Services For Infectious Disease Outbreak Research) assembles the largest and most diverse research and service-providing instrument to study infectious diseases in Europe, with expertise from structural biology to clinical trials. By giving scientists access to the whole extent of our state-of-the-art facilities, cutting-edge services, advanced equipment and expertise, in an integrated way and with a common goal, we will accelerate the generation of new knowledge and intervention tools to enhance Europe’s capacity for controlling (re)emerging and epidemic infectious diseases, starting with the COVID-19 pandemic. ISIDORe supports scientists and their research on epidemic- and pandemic-prone pathogens, the development of medical countermeasures, with the aim of increasing resilience in the face of epidemics in Europe and globally.

Outcomes of the project are:

  • Advance research on epidemic-prone diseases
  • Increase epidemic preparedness and responsiveness
  • Support the development of medical countermeasures against epidemic-prone pathogens
  • Share research data emerging from access provision activities according to FAIR principles ("Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable")

ISIDORe is a unique European integrated large-scale research infrastructure capacity for conducting research on any epidemic-prone pathogen, including SARS-CoV-2. It will be a powerful instrument at the disposal of the EU, and will impact its capacity to identify, characterise and mitigate the effects of any epidemic-prone pathogens.

ISIDORe aims to enable ground-breaking discoveries and the development of new medical countermeasures with high impact on health security and society.
