Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The European Commission through its Fifth Framework Research Programme recognised the importance of supporting research to underpin and contribute to the 'Control of Infectious Diseases' - the title given to Key Action 2 of the Quality of Life Programme.
In this catalogue are the fruits of these efforts - the scope of the research work undertaken is vast, ranging from vaccine development, enhanced epidemiological and surveillance activities and improved diagnostics. The range of agents and diseases under study is equally impressive, covering over 50% of the list to be progressively covered by the Network for the Epidemiological Surveillance and Control of Communicable Diseases in the Community. It provides an outline of over 170 scientific funded projects and aims to give scientist and policy makers an overview of the topics, range of organisations and countries that have been supported as well as the associated budgets that have been provided.
