Beyond COVID (BY-COVID)

Our vision is a future European data landscape where data is openly accessible and rapidly mobilised in response to future pandemics. The mission of the BY-COVID project is to mobilise open data from European platforms and facilities, enable data linking and access via the European COVID-19 data portal, and use this data to support a comprehensive response to the threat of SARS-CoV-2 variants.
BY-COVID will enable researchers, health care professionals and other organisations in the public or private sector to share, access, analyse, link and process research data and other digital objects across disciplines and national borders in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as others. It will drive adoption of best practices and standard and increase FAIRness, openness and quality of scientific research. Provision of comprehensive open data on infectious agents and diseases during outbreaks supports evidence-based decision making across scientific, medical, public health and policy domains. Transparent open data is a foundation of trust in, and reproducibility of, research outcomes. The increased utility and impact of integrated and connected high quality COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 data will be demonstrated in BY-COVID.
