Many of these are bottom-up, often in the framework of the EU's Horizon 2020 programme. Flemish research groups, life science companies, universities, experts and industry all play a part in the guidance, the decision-making and in providing solutions to help address this global health challenge.

The Flanders Department of Economy, Science and Innovation has published an overview of the ongoing research initiatives in epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment and social impact. A link to this publication, which is in English, can be found via the following link:

Let's hope this useful overview can lead to more much-needed international collaboration in the combat against Covid-19.
