"Many research funders around the world are issuing calls for research projects to be funded in fast track procedures to support the search for SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 treatment and eradication. A central information portal is a valuable resource for research teams looking for funding, as well as for funders trying to disseminate information as fast and wide as possible."

The monitor provides an overview of the funding conditions, such as eligibility, field types, funding types, and deadlines. Links take researchers directly to the original call documents where they can immediately begin the process of applying for the funding.

Stephan added: "We invite all research funders who are providing emergency funding for research on COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 to share the information with us and the research community to bookmark this resource and most importantly, keep checking it—daily. As a publisher that is run by researchers for researchers, we are part of that community and want to help funders and researchers by coordinating fast, simple and accurate information about where and how funding is available."
