To fight the ongoing COVID-19 crisis the European Union launched a global response effort on May 4 aiming to raise €7.5 billion. €1 billion are mobilized by Horizon 2020. The effort is based on two fundamental beliefs. The situation can only be coped with research and innovation and maybe even more important through cooperation. Therefore, the EU brings together and supports researchers and innovators to create effective and safe diagnostics, treatments and vaccines with fair and equal access for everyone. We would like to call attention to this outstanding efforts.
