EGI and EOSC-Synergy join forces to tackle COVID-19

We are proud to announce that EGI and the EOSC-Synergy project have joined forces to set up a cloud computing platform that supports COVID-19 research efforts.

The platform is based on the Galaxy service and offers researchers access to datasets relevant to the ongoing investigations on the COVID-19.

This initiative benefits from the services provided by the so-called “COVID-19 Virtual Organisation”, supported by the EGI Federated Cloud.

Isabel Campos, coordinator of the EOSC-Synergy project, says: “We are extremely happy to have set up this platform so quickly. European cooperation and know-how in distributed computing have never been more relevant in these challenging times. I am thankful to the members of the EOSC-Synergy project and the EGI Federation, and particularly to the EGI Foundation team for the swift and smooth support received to set up the user community support tools.”
