Research Foundry - A Global Research and Innovation Health and COVID-19 blockchain data sharing and collaboration network

Research Foundry is a global health centric coalition of researchers, public health officials, organizations and innovators who believe that large-scale problems can only be solved collaboratively. Research Foundry provides the infrastructure and the connected community to enable this collaboration with security, traceability and compliance. 

The project provides a free public utility data access and sharing service that allows participants to access open data collections, securely share data with those who need that data, and to collaboratively solve the immediate challenges presented by COVID-19 and  beyond.  The project also provides a set of advanced tools and solutions through coalition members.
