Request to become a CEPI Partner
Should your organisation wish to become a CEPI Partner and a member of the Partners Forum, kindly complete this form and submit, thereby signing the Partners Statement. Upon the receipt of a confirmation from the CEPI secretariat, you will be considered a member of the Partners Forum. After submitting the form you will receive a receipt of your response.

CEPI will in general welcome organizations that work within the end-to-end spectrum of vaccine development to become members of the Partners Forum. There might however be circumstances where CEPI will not seek such a partnership. This can include situations where the request comes from an organization that operates in a way that is in breach with CEPI’s values, does not adequately overlap with CEPI’s scope or is not considered to be a significant actor in the field. In principle, CEPI will not seek partnership with consultancies.

Should you have any questions or need clarification before signing, please contact the CEPI Secretariat at:

Your answer
Hereinafter refered to as "the Organization".
The signing organization and CEPI are herinafter referred to as the "parties" collectively.
1. Background
The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) is an international multi-stakeholder initiative supported by governments, international organisations, industry, public and philanthropic funders, academia, and civil society. CEPI is established to meet the need for a dedicated global initiative to strengthen the R&D response and development of effective vaccines targeting new and re-emerging infectious diseases. The vision of CEPI is that epidemic outbreaks of new and re-emerging infectious diseases will be managed an at early stage to prevent them from becoming public health emergencies that result in loss of life, undermine social and economic development, and emerge into humanitarian crises. The objective of CEPI is to create a global financing and coordination mechanism, and to strengthen public-private collaboration in order to develop, manufacture, and stockpile vaccines for emerging infectious diseases for which no commercial markets exist. CEPI will also support efforts to accelerate vaccine research and development (R&D) during public health emergencies. The initial focus will be to move new vaccines through development from preclinical to proof of principle in humans and the development of platforms that can be used for rapid vaccine development against unknown pathogens.

As a part of CEPI's multi-stakeholder nature, CEPI will establish a Partners Forum to allow for broad engagement of actors within the end-to-end space of vaccine development. The Partners Forum will be virtual, but likely complemented with Partners Forum meetings either annually or every second year. Members of the Partners Forum will receive regular updates from the CEPI Secretariat on CEPI's work.
