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. We will be publishing a more detailed spreadsheet of initiatives soon.

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.
