The outbreak of COVID-19 and the measures taken against it have raided us all. The closure of many laboratories, the (temporary) termination of clinical research, etcetera can have effects on, among other things, the execution, duration and financing of the research. This situation requires flexibility and creativity. Top Sector Life Sciences & Health (Health~Holland) feels a joint responsibility for finding solutions to ensure good progress and completion of all studies.
The project recovery team
Health-Holland has composed a multidisciplinary team consisting of representatives of the University Medical Centers/Universities, health foundations and RVO. The team will focus on identifying the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak on the research projects and what is necessary and possible to maintain progress on these projects. All options are open for the time being.
Because there are many questions, the project recovery team organises a webinar on June 4 from 12:00-13:00 o’clock with a Question & Answer session about the consequences of COVID-19 and the associated measures on the projects. More information here.
Inventory of COVID-19 effects
After the webinar, an inventory of the effects of COVID-19 will take place on individual projects, as the circumstances can vary greatly per project. The inventory will focus on among others:
- Obligations (in kind/cash) of (private) partners
- Project execution
- (Prevention of) expected delay
- (Prevention of) expected (extra) costs
