BARDA Industry Day
Currently, our attention is limited to COVID-19 response; as such, we are only reviewing meeting requests related to COVID-19.
3,700+ COVID-19 TechWatch Meeting Request Submissions
COVID-19 CoronaWatch requests from every state in the USA
490+ COVID-19 CoronaWatch Virtual Market Research Meetings with innovative companies
The U.S. government is providing a portal for the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) medical countermeasures task force as a single point of entry for the submission of market research packages and meeting requests from interested stakeholders.
The U.S. government, in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, seeks information from stakeholders on available medical countermeasures in development. We are particularly interested in products and technologies that have progressed into or beyond clinical trials, have established large-scale cGMP manufacturing capability, or utilize an approved platform. Information regarding diagnostics, therapeutics, vaccines, and other products or technologies relevant to addressing this outbreak are sought.
We ask for a brief description of your product or technology, accompanied by a slide deck, manuscript, publications, or other non-confidential information of your choosing. Please note that while we will use any information you present as market research, submission is no guarantee of a meeting or funding and your submission will be shared across U.S. Government agencies involved in COVID-19 medical countermeasure research and development. Only U.S. government officials are invited to join a CoronaWatch meeting, and are bound by law to maintain confidentiality of what is presented and discussed.

Before You Submit:
To enable a rapid-response to the COVID-19 outbreak, BARDA has repurposed our existing TechWatch program to focus on COVID-19 medical countermeasures. These CoronaWatch submissions and meetings aim to give innovators and innovative companies a government-wide platform to discuss their ideas with U.S. government experts, and seek partnership opportunities with a wide range of potential federal partners.
If you or your company are developing a medical countermeasure, platform technology, or other innovative product in our mission space, you can engage BARDA and other PHEMCE partner agencies to gain technical feedback on what is presented and strategic input as to its relevance for our mission at a CoronaWatch/TechWatch meeting. This TechWatch web portal is serving as the single point of entry for interested entities submitting market research and meeting requests for the U.S. government COVID-19 medical countermeasures task force. At this time, we are not seeking submissions from medical countermeasure developers that do not pertain to COVID-19.
CoronaWatch meetings will be held via interactive webinar only, and we will be able to interactively display slides and manuscripts received electronically. Though not required, meetings generally have two phases. The first is a presentation from the meeting requestor to government personnel, which is informal and highly interactive. The second phase is a discussion among the participants. Scientific subject matter experts from the PHEMCE partner agencies (including BARDA) and contracting officers will attend. Additional details will be provided at the time a meeting is scheduled.
Note: TechWatch submissions are not considered for potential funding
Note: Entities with a White Paper or proposal currently under review for any ASPR solicitation are not eligible to schedule a TechWatch meeting related to that submission. If you have concerns regaring your eligibility, please raise them with our TechWatch team as soon as possible.
