Om arbeidsgiveren

Launched in 2017, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) is an international coalition of governments, academic, philanthropic, private, public, and intergovernmental institutions whose vision is to create a world in which epidemics and pandemics are no longer a threat to humanity.

Our mission is to accelerate the development of vaccines and other biologic countermeasures against epidemic and pandemic threats so they can be accessible to all people in need. CEPI has overseen a number of scientific “firsts”, including the first-ever Chikungunya vaccine to receive approval, the advancement of the first-ever Nipah virus vaccines into Phase 1 trials, and a MERS and Lassa vaccine into first-ever Phase 2 trials. CEPI has also supported the development of four COVID-19 vaccines, which have received WHO Emergency Use Listing (EUL), and co-lead COVAX, the global initiative to support equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines.

CEPI’s five-year plan for 2022-2026 – known as CEPI 2.0 – aims to dramatically reduce or even eliminate the future risk of pandemics and epidemics. Central to the plan is CEPI’s goal to accelerate the time taken to develop safe, effective, globally accessible vaccines against new threats to just 100 days. Achieving this ‘100 Days Mission’, which has been embraced by leaders of the G7 and G20, would give the world a fighting chance of containing a future outbreak before it can spread to become a global pandemic, potentially averting millions of deaths and trillions of dollars in economic damage. 
CEPI is a not-for-profit association under Norwegian Law and has offices in Oslo (HQ), London, and Washington DC.

In CEPI we strive for diverse thinking, and we want a diverse pool of candidates for all our vacancies. We work for an inclusive working environment where each employee can contribute and grow.
