We report the findings of a high-level mapping exercise to understand more about the busy landscape of data initiatives related to COVID-19.
There has been a huge investment in research to tackle COVID-19 in the last six months, and an ever-increasing amount of relevant data is being generated and collected. Many new COVID-19 data collaborations and initiatives have been established across the world.
With such a complex and busy landscape, it is often difficult to keep up-to-date with what is happening, and the lack of coordination across different initiatives poses a risk of duplication.
We therefore conducted a mapping exercise to build our understanding of COVID data-related activities. We are sharing the initial findings from this internal work to help inform our partners and reduce duplication.

The landscape is continuing to evolve rapidly, and this mapping is not exhaustive. We are seeking input from the global COVID-19 community to keep it as up-to-date and comprehensive as possible. Please do get in touch if there are other initiatives that should be included, or if you would like to collaborate on making this a living review.
