About the Coronavirus Resilience Innovation Map


Coronavirus Resilience Innovation Map is a global directory with hundreds of innovations and solutions that help people cope and adapt to life amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and connect with innovators.

With the emergence and clear effect of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), people around the world are dramatically changing all aspects of life. The past year has shown us that we must learn how to become resilient, adapt faster, and innovate in order to navigate these challenging times.

The global quest to stop the virus has also pushed us to use our technology to help spread the innovation to relevant stakeholders.
