COVID-19 Fast Track Funding

EOSC is an ideal tool to respond to public emergencies such as the COVID-19 virus by:

  • opening up scientific data on the virus,
  • sharing live on-the-ground data on the spread of the virus, as well as software, standards and processes for monitoring COVID-19 treatment and development,
  • accessing and combining this data not only to eradicate the virus but learn how to deal with similar viruses and future outbreaks,
  • assessing the validity of epidemic information in relation to the virus by ensuring that its sources can be traced and verified.

The past months have seen the European scientific community’s answer to the COVID-19 pandemic. EOSC Secretariat responded to this clear need for stakeholder engagement by introducing funding opportunities that will be fast-tracked at this challenging time for us all.
