I am a member of the Research Data Alliance COVID-19 Working Group.

The overarching objectives of this Working Group (WG) are:

  • to clearly define detailed guidelines on data sharing under the present COVID-19 circumstances to help stakeholders follow best practices to maximize the efficiency of their work,

  • to develop guidelines for policymakers to maximise timely data sharing and appropriate responses in such health emergencies, and

  • to address the interests of researchers, policy makers, funders, publishers, and providers of data sharing infrastructures.
