Call for action: COVID-19 data collaboratives

This article is also available in Russian.

No one country or sector can overcome COVID-19 alone: this deadly pandemic requires swift and coordinated multi-stakeholder collaboration and knowledge sharing. Numerous data collaboratives and partnerships are happening beyond the official UN system. The Governance Lab has created a living repository for data collaboratives with the aim to build a responsible infrastructure for data-driven pandemic response.

The living repository includes a list of ongoing data collaborative projects, as well as requests for data and expertise and information on data competitions, challenges, and calls for proposals, which can lead to useful tools to combat COVID-19.

The aim is to include projects that show a commitment to privacy protection, data responsibility, and overall user well-being. It will be updated regularly as GovLab receives projects and proposals or otherwise becomes aware of them. Individuals are encouraged to edit the below and/or suggest additions to the repository.
