  • To develop a network of hospitals with ICU and non-ICU departments within EU Member States and Associated Countries;
  • To build a strong governance for the selection of treatment and strategies to be evaluated, taking into consideration all stakeholders involved;
  • To develop a second-generation master protocol targeting in particular COVID-19;
  • To launch and conduct, in the medium term, through this platform a first trial based on an open call;
  • To coordinate the activities between different pan-European COVID-19 Adaptive Platform trials, establishing a single coordination mechanism with a coordinated strategy aligned with European and national policies.


  • Extending DisCoVeRy in Europe;
  • DisCoVeRy for Solidarity: a platform trial for COVID-19 and other emerging infectious diseases;
