On the 23rd of June 2021, the European Commission launched the Coronavirus Global R&I Collaboration Portal, a dedicated online platform inviting researchers from Europe and across the world, to contribute to addressing the socio-economic challenges of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Collaborative efforts are deemed crucial to tackling the challenges of the COVID-19 outbreak rapidly and effectively as well as responding to the socio-economic challenges that have arisen at a global level. Research organisations and individual researchers are invited to connect, coordinate, and collaborate on research projects related to the socio-economic aspects of the pandemic.

Research organisations and individual researchers are invited to connect, coordinate, and collaborate on research projects related to the socio-economic aspects of the pandemic. The intention is to increase the impact of their research activities, enable sharing of information and to complement synergies required to successfully address the future socio-economic challenges.

Research organisations and individual researchers are encouraged to review the list of registered R&I members, covering broader research fields such as natural and life sciences.

To become a member of the global R&I community, researchers are invited to register on the portal as the R&I member. Researchers are further invited to look for collaboration opportunities among a network of global R&I members.
