Crowdhelix, an UK-based innovation network, in partnership with media company Science|Business, created a free online “space” for COVID-19 researchers to find one another across the globe, and team up to find treatments and the funding to support their work.
The service is a simple online tool for COVID-19 researchers – whatever their country or specialty – to connect.
Researchers can profile themselves, their teams, and their organisations, and post opportunities to collaborate. An intelligent recommender system then matches these opportunities with the most suitable prospective collaborators, using natural language processing and machine-learning.
At the same time, they can check up on funding opportunities announced around the world, and latest COVID-19 research news.
