  • Result description

    COVID-19 Data Platform is an infrastructure that provides access to open literature and data on both the virus and the disease. It enhances researchers in their efforts towards critical information resources. The European COVID-19 Data Platform consists of three components: the COVID-19 Data Portal, the SARS-Cov-2 Data Hubs, and the Federated EGA (European Genome Phenome Archive).

    Problem addressed

    Data across different data types is integrated and linked to promote FAIR and open sharing and usage for the benefit of the global scientific community. Long term infrastructure is provided for SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 data that will remain publicly available and re-usable. The infrastructure built can be repurposed to be used for future pandemics as well.

    Who can use the result

    Any citizens, researchers, health care professionals and policy makers on thematic, national and European level.
