Project Details


BeYond-COVID (BY-COVID) is a Horizon Europe funded project, which will tackle the data challenges linked to SARS-CoV-2 and other infectious diseases, that can hinder effective pandemic response. Building a multidisciplinary data ecosystem for COVID-19, the project works towards sustainability, accessibility and a more agile reaction to future threats.

BY-COVID, takes an interdisciplinary approach that unites life science, medical, policy, social science and public health experts from across Europe. Led by ELIXIR, the project has 53 partners from 20 European countries. The BY-COVID project starts in October 2021, will run for three years and is part of the European Commission’s HERA Incubator plan ‘Anticipating together the threat of COVID-19 variants’.

Layman's description

The BeYond-COVID project aims to make COVID-19 data accessible to scientists in laboratories but also to anyone who can use it, such as medical staff in hospitals or government officials.

Going beyond SARS-CoV-2 data, the project will provide a framework for making data from other infectious diseases open and accessible to everyone.
