Press release on the COVID-19 crisis

Press release on the COVID-19 crisis - Wallonia and Brussels mobilise with more than 190 research projects and business initiatives, gathered on a new platform: WWW.COVID19-WB.be.

Since the beginning of the health crisis, a large number of scientific research projects and business initiatives have been rapidly set up in Wallonia and Brussels to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on health and society as a whole. A very large number of skills and expertise, in all fields of science, have been associated with these projects.

At the initiative of the Royal Academy of Medicine and the Royal Academy of Sciences, Letters and Fine Arts of Belgium, supported by the universities of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, the #FNRS was asked to draw up an inventory and to disseminate it on the Internet.

This is now done, with a first version of this inventory published this Wednesday morning on www.COVID19-WB.be. The site currently brings together nearly 250 initiatives developed to help combat the pandemic and its consequences: scientific research (universities and FNRS) is represented by more than 160 projects, in addition to some thirty business initiatives, as well as the reference of some fifty expertises in various scientific fields.
This site has been designed with a view to constant improvement: other projects may be added to the current version on a regular basis.

The site can be consulted in English and constitutes a unique database demonstrating the richness, dynamism and diversity of our scientific research (fundamental and applied).
applied) and our companies.

The themes are about :

  • Fundamental research in Life and Health Sciences
  • Tests and diagnostics
  • Therapy and care
  • Vaccines and prevention
  • Big data and e-health
  • People and society
  • Economics, ethics and law
  • Public policy
  • Information and communication
    The initiatives can come from the 6 universities of the FWB, the FNRS, university hospitals, universities, federal institutions, research centres or companies.

Exceptional Research Projects (call opening 15 May)

  • On 15 May next, the call for Exceptional Research Projects (PER) will be opened.
  • These research projects will be fundable up to €260,000 each.
  • These projects may be grafted onto others already underway in laboratories and university hospitals.
  • The fields concerned are not only those of life and health sciences but also those of human and social sciences:


    • Epidemiological and translational studies
      • Natural history of the disease (including anthropogenic factors) and mode of transmission of the virus
      • Diagnosis of infection, asymptomatic carriage, evolution of immune response
      • Clinical characterization and management
      • Predictive and retrospective numerical models
    • Physiopathogeny of the disease (virus-host interactions and immune response)
      • Development of animal and cellular models
      • Therapeutic Targets and Evaluation Models for Drug Candidates (not including vaccines)
    • Infection prevention and control measures in health-care settings (including the best ways to protect health workers) and in community settings
      • Vulnerability and resilience of individuals, collectives and organizations
      • Conditions of efficiency and actual conditions for implementing information, prevention, care and control measures
      • Assessment and modelling of the epidemiological, economic and financial impact of the epidemic and of prevention and control measures
    • As well as areas related to geopolitical issues, ethics of research and care and human rights, representations, perceptions, attitudes and behaviours relating to the epidemic and the organization of care, health policy and the acceptability of decisions, as well as the overall economic impacts of the crisis.


  • Projects aiming at the development of tests in clinical biology/screening are also eligible.
