FAPESP Covid-19 Research Webinars | Open Data under the COVID-19 pandemic

by FAPESP, with data on 180K patients provided by research institutions and hospitals
in the state of São Paulo, the 4th episode of FAPESP COVID-19 Research Webinars will
address the relevance, the difficulties, and how initiatives such as this repository and

with the pandemic, as well as the challenges and benefits of COVID-19 data sharing.
