Research on SARS-CoV-2 (hereinafter: COVID-19) within the framework of research programmes
Principal investigators of research programmes may extend their
research interest to direct or indirect COVID-19 research.
(Ljubljana, March 26 2020) In accordance with the decision of
the ARRS Scientific Council of 25 March 2020, we invite all programme groups to
adapt or redirect their research submitted at the last call for research
programme proposals, where appropriate and possible, in order to contribute to
addressing the COVID-19 related issues.
Principal investigators of the programme groups that would
like to refocus their research are invited to email the Agency’s administrators
of research programmes and inform them about the basic directions of adapted or
redirected research to be carried out within the existing scope of the research
programme. When evaluating the research programme interim reports, the reviewers
will be notified of the revised research topics. The ARRS Scientific Council
calls for thoughtful adjustment of research topics and content.
