As you know, society and the economy are facing times of rapid change. Covid-19 is spreading, and all our governments are taking necessary dispositions to stop its diffusion. A lot of organizations are going to be impacted by this health crisis, and therefore countries are taking actions to support companies hit by the economic downturn. We also want to help organizations that are doing a great job right now!
The science is galloping forward, and collaboration between the public and private sectors is vital to combat the coronavirus. That's why Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), based in The United States, released a new online hub. This hub connects entities in need with those who have supplies and capacity critical to ensuring continued research and development.
"We are all in this fight together. It will take the great scientists of this industry working together across the globe to win the battle against an invisible enemy. Creating a central location to match need requests with availability helps research and development programs continue." said BIO President and CEO Jim Greenwood.
In 48 hours, we launched together with BIO their new hub. We are delighted to help to achieve their incredibly important mission.
"We reached out to Open Social for an extremely rapid deployment of the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) Coronavirus Hub. With the help of their skilled team, we went live 48-hours after our initial discussion."
"In this fast-moving environment time is of the essence, through this hub BIO, and our partner Healthcare Ready, is able to connect medical research centers, biopharmaceutical companies and testing sites requesting supplies and inquiring about manufacturing capacity. We are continuing to improve the online Hub to make the biggest real-world impact."
