Creation of a new WP on global response to COVID-19

To respond to the urgent need for a coordinated, global response to COVID-19, the ReCoDID project was asked to add a new Work Package (WP) on COVID-19 to capitalize on the existing synergies with ReCoDID partner EMBL’s European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), with a particular focus on the harmonization and sharing of data that includes linkages between clinical-epidemiological and high dimensional OMICs data. EMBL-EBI is involved in multiple EC-funded research and infrastructure projects and has been asked to develop a COVID-19 data sharing platform for Europe.
