Swedish Research Council to coordinate shared EU COVID-19 data portal

The Swedish Research Council has been tasked by the government with coordinating national data and metadata collection on COVID-19 research for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), a European research data portal. The Council has also been charged with representing Sweden on the portal.

The objective of developing the portal is to collect data from member states in a coordinated and secure manner, facilitating knowledge-sharing based on the latest research results. The portal has been set up in a collaborative effort between the European Commission and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), of which Sweden is a member.
