Many organisations across the world are conducting studies into COVID-19 and generating data that, when aggregated and re-analysed, can lead to powerful insights that help accelerate discovery of interventions. However, the datasets are often siloed, making it difficult for researchers to share and collaborate quickly to leverage the expertise and capabilities of 21st century research and analysis.

The International COVID-19 Data Research Alliance and Workbench is being established to help respond to this challenge. It will provide an environment for focused collaborative research, matching high value data from many sources with cutting edge analysis to accelerate collaboration, discovery and development of insights and treatments to combat COVID-19, all with privacy and accessibility in mind. Over the longer-term, it will enable scientific discovery to respond to future disease outbreaks.

Please join us on Wednesday 8th July from 3:30 – 5:00pm BST to learn more about this initiative and ways in which you can become involved. We are keen to make this session as informative as possible. You can submit a question via the registration form, or email us on

We are conscious that there is a huge amount of activity in this arena and are therefore keen to connect, collaborate with and involve existing initiatives. Therefore please do share this invitation with colleagues who you think may also be interested in learning more.
