The first monitoring bulletin of the I-Move COVID-19 network, including data from nine hospital monitoring sites in seven European countries, is published on Zenodo.org, an “Open Science” publication portal built and developed by researchers. The data collected covers the period from February to August 2020.
The I-MOVE COVID-19 consortium (coordinated by Epiconcept) was created following the European Commission’s call for proposals H2020 “Advancing knowledge for the clinical and public health response to the emerging coronavirus epidemic”. It brings together many partners already involved in the I-MOVE network (Influenza – Monitoring Vaccine Effectiveness in Europe).
I-MOVE-COVID-19 hospital-based surveillance aims to strengthen and complement the epidemiological data of COVID-19 in the EU/EEA and the UK, compiled and reported by the ECDC.
