The European Commission has offered 80 million euros for CureVac, a German company that is working on a vaccine against the coronavirus. The announcement comes just one day after rumors that the company has received an offer from the White House to develop a vaccine specifically for the US.

In but published yesterday, the European Commission said that the Commission President Ursula von der Leyen promised “up to 80 million euros” for a biotechnology company, in a discussion via video link with the company’s management.

Priority is currently based CureVac Tubingen, who also received “substantial funding” from and to find a vaccine against the coronavirus that causes havoc around the world. Hope the company to begin testing in humans in early June.

Von der Leyen said that he was proud to “have a company as leading CureVac in the EU. The house them here. But the vaccine they would benefit everyone, in Europe and beyond.”

comment and offer financial support seems to be a direct rebuttal of attempts alleged by the United States to offer CureVac and scientists have large sums of money to produce a vaccine against the coronavirus, specifically for the US market.

meeting at the White House

German weekly quoted sources as saying the German government, reported on March 15 that Daniel Menichella, until the week of CEO last research firm based in Tübingen, has a meeting at the White House in early March, where he was offered “a high amount, there was talk of 1 billion US $ in Berlin,” to get the vaccine, “but only to the US,” reported the paper.

, including the Foreign Minister, Heiko Maas, and Health Minister, Jens Spahn, the company reacted to “reject the acquisition rumors” that it works “to develop coronavirus vaccine” to protect people around the world, “and not just in the US.

“No and no takeover fer from the White House or governmental authority. Either to technology or to CureVac altogether as a company, “added acting CEO Franz-Werner Haas in a conference call with reporters on Monday.

The rumors were also denied by Richard Grenell, acting Director of National Intelligence and the US ambassador to Germany, who tweeted “Not true. The story Welt is wrong.”

Not really The Welt story. One. But Business Insider, Reuters and others go with it anyway despite not having their own sources. Now everyone peddle back.

Controversy < / p>

controversy began after then CureVac CEO and Vice President Mike Pence on March 2, “to discuss the construction of a coronavirus in the US”.

Adding to speculation that the rapid change of the company’s CEO. on March 11, a week after the White House meeting, Menichella replaced by the company’s founder Ingmar Hoerr, without the company giving a specific reason for the change.

Since July 1st, 2019, Hoerr has also been a member of the Advisory Board of the European Council, which have.

But on March 15, the day before the Commission announced financial support for CureVac, Hoerr company’s supervisory board replaced by Deputy CEO Franz-Werner Haass, announced that Hoerr “” stressing that his leave of absence “tida k is caused by a coronavirus “.

The company stated that the rapid succession of the CEO at the time of the Trump-takeover rumors and the decision on the support of the European Union is “pure coincidence”.

European support

Without confirm – or deny – reports on the interests of US President Donald Trump in the company, the European Union states that European support today for CureVac “is part of all public health threat of Covid-19. ”

The European Commission has mobilized up to € 140 million in public and private funding for research support. On March 6 – four days after CureVac management met with Trump and Mike Pence Vice President in the White House – “the Commission announced that the research and innovation program, Horizon 2020.”
