Research Infrastructures and COVID-19 Research

European Research Infrastructures are joining the global effort to respond to the COVID-19 challenge. An overview of the dedicated services, such as rapid access to instruments, access to databases and other resources to support COVID-19 research is now available and regularly updated.

Fundamental Research

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, several Research Infrastructures (RIs) have set up specific services, such as rapid access to instruments, data and other resources, to allow researchers to obtain results as soon as possible. To facilitate the visibility of those services and maximise their use by researchers, ERF-AISBL (the Association of European-Level Research Infrastructures Facilities), in collaboration with CERIC-ERIC, are collecting the relevant information about the initiatives on a dedicated website ► To support the research community to find suitable services and facilitate research on Coronavirus, Research Infrastructures are invited to submit their dedicated COVID-19 services and resources by responding to this questionnaire by Wednesday, 1st April ► Information about the relevant services will be promoted in the dedicated website. — This questionnaire has been set-up in the frame of the CERIC coordinated project ACCELERATE, funded by the European Union Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020, under Grant Agreement 731112.
