Lygature endorses the Manifesto for EU COVID-19 research

News News

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic engulfing the world we are now faced with unprecedented challenges not only as a society but in the research community as well. The nature of our work at Lygature helps us understand the impact of accessibility of research results and we have therefore decided to endorse the Manifesto for EU COVID-19 research.

The Manifesto, which has been endorsed by many organizations, focuses specifically on research results stemming from EU funded research grants related to COVID-19 on prevention (including vaccines), testing and treatment. Such results should be made publicly available and accessible in open access and following the FAIR principles.

In the Netherlands Lygature is also committed to support researchers and research institutions to provide maximal accessibility and reuse of COVID-19 research data. One of the flagship projects supported by Lygature, Health-RI, has established and is maintaining the Dutch COVID-19 support programme in close collaboration with the Dutch university medical centres, as well as Dutch research funders.
