Epiverse: Distributed Pandemic Tools Program


Epiverse: Distributed Pandemic Tools Program

We are launching a global consortium to design and build open software tools enabling privacy-preserving distributed analysis of data to power pandemic response.



Covid-19 exposed major gaps in our collective ability to aggregate and use data to prevent, detect, and respond to a pandemic. data.org’s “Epiverse” platform addresses these gaps by bringing together researchers, government, tech/cloud computing companies, social impact organizations, and funders in order to build, deploy, and scale innovative solutions. By unlocking insights in non-traditional data, new privacy-preserving distributed tools have potential beyond epidemiology to broader social challenges.

Areas of Focus

While the initial use cases focus on mitigating Covid-19 and other pandemics, Epiverse will be a public good built with the broader aim of transforming the distributed analytics commons and supporting use cases across the social impact sector.

Develop Software and Tools

Identifying and funding top teams, including those in the Global South, to build a suite of generalizable open-source epidemiological software and tools, and developing long-term sustainability plans with this community-of-practice, in order to allow for rapid, robust, and reproducible policy-relevant modelling far into the future.
