Research projects

The COVID predict consortium stimulates the use of the database in participating centres in the Netherlands. The data can be used if a (1) reciprocal DSA is signed with coordinating center, (2) the research question fits with the obtained medical ethical approval (UAMC) and data protection agreement, (3) the research title and contact person is visible on the website (4) in publications grant applications the ‘COVID predict database’ is acknowledged and (5) centres are open for collaboration with other (data) centres/researchers.
