COVID-19: Mapping research and innovation platforms and initiatives

Earth with coronavirus around

In relation to the coronavirus pandemic, STOA has collected a non-exhaustive list of initiatives, which aim to facilitate the exchange of information and enable contacts between different stakeholders at the European level and beyond. Part of these initiatives have given rise to platforms where people can store and share datasets. Most of them are related to research and innovation. Other links in this list represent useful data collection platforms in multidisciplinary areas. This mapping exercise covers the period from 1 April 2020 to 15 June 2020.

European Commission

Joint Research Centre

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 crisis, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) – the European Commission’s in-house science and knowledge service – has been supporting the European Commission in multidisciplinary areas to understand the COVID-19 emergency, anticipate its impacts, and support contingency planning. This activity forms part of a broader effort by the JRC to contribute through crisis coordination mechanisms with the detection, monitoring and analysis of the COVID-19 outbreak.


Eurostat has now brought together its very wide range of statistics and data related to the coronavirus in one place on its website. This dedicated zone provides coronavirus-related statistics relating to the economy, society and work, population and health, as well as specifically agriculture, energy, transport and tourism.
