GloPID-R Secretariat

Project description

Global coordination to improve pandemic preparedness and response

The EU-funded project GloPID-R Secretariat is coordinating and supporting GloPID-R, the global coalition of research funding organisations that invest in research to improve pandemic preparedness and response. The GloPID-R Secretariat provides scientific, strategic, organisational, financial and administrative support for the GloPID-R members and to its Executive Board. It oversees GloPID-R communications, facilitating information sharing among its members and stakeholders while raising visibility of this global coalition and its activities.


GloPID-R-Sec II is the secretariat to the Global Research Collaboration for Infectious Disease Preparedness (GloPID-R). The partners FMER and UOXF have been successfully running the GloPID-R Secretariat (hereafter” the Secretariat) for the last five years (2015-2019). The current GloPID-R Secretariat-staff involved at FMER and UOXF will also be involved in GloPID-R Sec II, guaranteeing a smooth transition and continuity from the current Secretariat to its new funding period. The activities of the Secretariat encompass:
- Organisational-secretarial support for smooth and efficient implementation of the operational activities of GloPID-R (e.g. organisation of meetings, maintenance of the GloPID-R Charter, financial monitoring and reporting)
- Implementing, evaluating and maintaining an effective external communications programme to build the GloPID-R membership and support for GloPID-R;
- Providing ‘on demand’ technical support for the further development and operationalisation of GloPID-R’s strategy. This includes amongst others, (i) Operational support to facilitate rapid and aligned funding of research in outbreak emergencies, (ii) Technical support to research preparedness to reinforce rapid response capacities and (iii) Coordination activities to reinforce GloPID-R’s visibility and capacity to operate as a global platform.
