UK-based Crowdhelix partnered with Science|Business media company to launch a free online match-making service for COVID-19 researchers. It is advised by Dr Björn Kull, Head of Grants Office at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, and supported by KU Leuven university in Belgium.

Among the topics involved are virology, epidemiology, social sciences and humanities, behavioural science, and data science.

The platform’s functionality includes individual, collective and organisational profiling and posting opportunities for collaboration, which then are matched with the most suitable prospective collaborators by an intelligent recommender system.

There is also a list of funding opportunities compiled by Science|Business.

Another source of information on funding of the COVID-19 research is offered by an open science platform Frontiers, which has launched the Coronavirus Funding Monitor.

It provides an overview of the funding conditions, such as eligibility, field types, funding types, and deadlines.
