OpenCovid19: the power of collaboration. 

At JOGL, we believe in the power of open-source community-led approaches to address complex global challenges. The OpenCovid19 program breaks down barriers and empowers individuals and communities to take action together to solve the coronavirus pandemic.

Like all JOGL programs, OpenCovid19 is organized in a set of challenges which address specific topics related to the coronavirus pandemic: treatment, detection, prevention, data analysis, and others. These challenges host projects: challenge-related solutions being created and implemented by the community. 

OpenCovid19 offers microgrants!

Thanks to our generous sponsors, JOGL offers up to $3,000 microgrants for OpenCovid19 projects. The grant review follows an open-source process in which the entire OpenCovid19 community can take part. To request for funding for your project, create your project on JOGL using the Grant proposal submission guide. When your project is ready to be reviewed, simply fill out a Grant proposal submission form.

We are volunteer-powered.

Thousands of volunteers and experts from around the world collaborate on the JOGL website and on the Slack workspace. Together, we create solutions to better prevent, detect, and treat COVID19.
