  • Covid Connect NI

    We are working with government, our universities and the community and voluntary sector to support a coordinated contribution by the local digital innovator community to solve COVID-19 challenges across Northern Ireland.

    We want to match the digital expertise, capacity and resources of innovators with emerging COVID-19 problems.

    We have set up a dedicated website to connect challenge owners with potential digital solutions.

    If your organisation can offer support or requires support, please sign up on the Covid Connect NI website.
