Welcome to the Coronavirus Global R&I Collaboration Portal.
The portal is a digital hub offering collaboration opportunities for researchers and research projects related to the socio-economic aspects of the Coronavirus pandemic. It provides the opportunity for networking and collaboration between projects, organisations and individual researchers worldwide.
Created in response to the Coronavirus outbreak, the portal’s overall aim is to provide networking and matchmaking opportunities. It connects researchers and their ideas and further increases the impact of their activities, contributing not only to the social science studies during the Coronavirus pandemic, but also to life and natural sciences.
The portal promotes the sharing of information: project objectives, activities, members, results and collaboration interests. It also gives visibility and networking opportunities to organisations and individuals active in the relevant research fields.
Most importantly, it is helping to identify cross-border needs and match them with opportunities of global collaboration with researchers, projects and organisations conducting social sciences, life and natural sciences-related research activities including experimental research, product development, funding, policymaking initiatives and fieldwork.
As an online matchmaking portal, it is designed as a comprehensive, user-friendly tool that offers customised search and filtering tools. It also creates synergies with other online platforms on the Coronavirus pandemic.
