Blockchain-facilitated sharing to advance outbreak R&D

In a world in which we are increasingly mobile, outbreaks of known or new infectious diseases are a real and unavoidable threat. It is vital that we build improved systems to more quickly detect and respond to new outbreaks. Concepts for such a system are the outcome of research published in Science Magazine and conducted by the Athena Institute, the RIVM Center for Infectious Disease Control, and industry partner FutureLab.
