COVID Research Coordination and Learning Initiative

The COVID Research Coordination and Learning (CIRCLE) coordinates funding efforts, connects networks of researchers, and collates learnings to inform future epidemic and pandemic responses with a focus on lower-resource settings.


The platform supports researchers working on COVID-19 research and it highlights relevant resources, news, events and research networks to support COVID-19 research in, with and for low resource settings.

The COVID CIRCLE initiative is a partnership between the UK Collaborative on Development Research (UKCDR) and the Global Research Collaboration for Infectious Disease Preparedness (GloPID-R).
