2019 Novel Coronavirus Federal Market Research Initiative

If you are interested in partnering with the federal government on a COVID-19 medical countermeasure, submit your ideas to a platform that reaches a host of potential federal partners! The federal government established a single point of entry for product developers to submit their research on 2019 novel coronavirus medical countermeasures. Submit a brief description and supporting materials through our Market Research Initiative.

Note that funding is not available through a market research submission alone, and you cannot meet with the USG if you have a pending BAA or EZ-BAA submission on the same topic as your meeting.
