ICLAIM joins ‘PREPARED’!

Since 1 September 2022, ICLAIM has joined a consortium of a total of 16 partner organisations under the ‘PREPARED’ project. A three-year project (2022-2025) led by the University of Central Lancashire in Cyprus (UCLan Cyprus), under the prestigious and highly competitive Horizon Europe programme of the European Union. With one university, coordinating this huge project, UCLan Cyprus, and one award winning civil society organisation, ICLAIM, Cyprus has extraordinary representation in this global project.

PREPARED stands for ‘Pro-active Pandemic Crisis Ethics and Integrity Framework’, and the project’s objective is to develop an ethics and integrity framework to support rapid and effective research during global crises.  Project deliverable include:

  • an interdisciplinary, accessible, and jargon-free code of conduct for research during global crises,
  • ‘How to’ guidelines to support the needs of research teams, and
  • Engaging training and capacity building materials, to be disseminated across the Globe.

The success of the project is guaranteed also through the establishment of a network of 14 advisors, coming from five continents.
