Impact & Open Data

The CVR’s mission is to improve global health and preparedness to viral threats by carrying out research on human viral diseases, and on viruses at the human–animal interface. The centre aims to achieve its mission through investment in challenge-led programmes and technological platforms, coupled with strategic partnerships, thereby impacting on the scientific community and more broadly combat the effects of viruses and viral diseases on society.

The CVR also embraces a policy of open access to research data (as well as computing code and software) and its wide availability to support the research community. We strive to continually improve accessibility to ensure that our research outputs achieve the greatest impact outside of the CVR.
