RDGB meetings

The RDGB meets on a regular basis to review researcher requests to access the COVID-19 Data Research Hub. 

This is an rolling call for applications. 

To be considered at an RDGB meeting, an application must first be reviewed by the RDGB Secretariat and have undergone a preliminary review by the CSO. This process will take approximately 5 working days.

Only valid applications that are considered to be within scope will be forwarded by the Secretariat to RDGB members approximately 10 working days in advance of a scheduled meeting. The number of applications reviewed at each meeting may be capped. Applicants will be informed of the RDGB meeting where their application will be reviewed, following the initial CSO preliminary review.


Upcoming RDGB meeting dates:  

RDGB meetings are typically held monthly.  Following the opening for applications in early March 2021, two meetings are planned for the month of April 2021.
