One platform to inspire and empower learners, of all age, willing to contribute to collective problem solving.
OpenCovid is an Open Source Pharma & CRI Paris initiative in the #LearningPlanet spirit.

Moving from awareness to action, together.

We are starting our work by curating the best resources and open source projects on covid19 and encouraging collective contributions and open discussions. Next, we will develop learning and problem-solving tools to host and nurture projects.

Help us document the best covid19 resources

Are you working on or know of any resource/project that could help solve the covid19 crisis? Please fill out it to our community curated database so we can feature it online and share with the rest of the world.
