Winners of the DIM ELICIT special call for proposals: Fight SARS-CoV-2

SARS-CoV-2 Special Call : Results announcement


Earlier this year, the DIM ELICIT announced a special call for proposals, aimed to support projects developing innovative technologies and methods regarding the analysis, diagnosis and/or treatment to fight SARS-CoV-2.

We are now happy to announce that seven projects were selected within the frame of this call.


The selected projects:


– Determinants of SARS-CoV-2 and other coronaviruses tropism in 3D models of human pulmonary epithelia 🔗

– Single molecule characterization of the activity of an enzyme and its inhibitors involved in SARS-CoV-2 replication 🔗

– Low cost assay for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 using antigen-displaying bacteria, lateral flow assay, and magnetic capture 🔗

– Volumetric approach to vascular consequences of the COVID-19 in both adults and children 🔗

POSCOVD: Towards a population-scale Covid-19 diagnosis 🔗

Corona-Intestine – Development of human intestine biomimetic to study SARS-CoV-2 infection in the gut 🔗

Covi-Read – Development of a rapid and portable microfluidic test dedicated to the detection of SARS-CoV-2 🔗


The DIM ELICIT warmly congratulates all the winners and wishes them full success in these innovative projects of topical matter, during this particular time.
