UAEM Launches Covid-19 Public Funds Tracking Tool at Key Universities

UAEM, in conjunction with SNMA and AMSA, launches its interactive mapping tool for COVID-19 public funds at universities and public research institutions. Our first set of data spans Australasia, Europe, North America and South Korea. 

UAEM’s mapping tool illustrates the magnitude of public funding that has been directed to university research on COVID-19. These findings will be leveraged to call on universities to ensure that COVID-19 health technologies developed with their contributions are widely and equitably accessible. UAEM activists across the world will be working with universities, students and researchers to promote equitable licensing practices and raise awareness of the important role of universities, public funding and public knowledge in the development of COVID-19 technologies.
