2) Organise and develop new treatments, vaccines and other prevention tools, diagnosis and surveillance tools for emerging infectious diseases;
3) Help public policies and society deal with epidemic crises.

Matchmaking event

In order to facilitate the construction of multidisciplinary consortia and to bring together teams with complementary expertise, a matchmaking event is proposed to teams wishing to apply to the PEPR MIE call for projects.

This event will take place in several phases:

  • From March 13 to 17, 2023: A first phase of registration for the event in person on a dedicated online platform. Until March 23: Teams will be able to complete their fields of expertise but also indicate the premises and ideas of their research projects. All this information will be public and visible to other participants.


  • March 23, 2023: A second phase of face-to-face meetings in Paris. This morning of exchanges will allow participants who have the possibility to do so to briefly present their research projects, and then to directly exchange with researchers whose research topics interest them particularly in order to build ambitious projects.


  • From March 24 to April 6, 2023: A third phase of online exchanges on the dedicated platform, open to all registered participants, to continue the discussions that took place during the event but also to allow people who could not come to Paris to interact.


Location of the event on March 23, 2023: New cap Event Center, 3 quai de Grenelle, 75015, Paris

Registration to this event and the use of the platform are free.
Please note that registration for the in-person event is limited to 80 people.
This event, and more particularly the in-person part in Paris, is primarily aimed at French academic research teams.
However, all partners (private partners, representatives of civil society and international partners) are also invited to register on the platform to propose their expertise.
To ensure the quality and diversity of the exchanges, we encourage you to favor the participation of one or two representatives per research team who will confirm their presence.
