The European Commission launched the European COVID-19 Data Platform

On 20 April 2020, the European Commission, together with EU Members States and research partners, launched a COVID-19 Data Platform. The platform is part of the ERAvsCorona Action Plan and aims to accelerate Coronavirus research by facilitating data sharing and analysis. This joint effort underlines the European Commission’s commitment to Open Science, by making science more accessible and efficient in order to tackle societal challenges.

The platform includes SARS-CoV-2 Data Hubs, which organise the flow of SARS-CoV-2 outbreak datasets and provide comprehensive open data sharing for research communities, as well as the COVID-19 Data portal, which brings together relevant COVID-19 datasets and tools, and facilitates access to other COVID-19 resources.
