eTownz / Community Research Alliance: COVID19 Response Project Update 2.4.20

Our covid19 community response project has been moving forward over the past few days and a number of key achievements which include: 

  1. Partners – Irish Rural Link, Collaboration Ireland, National Rural Network, Engineers Without Borders Ireland and other organisations have come onboard to help develop and disseminate solutions 
  2. Website & Resources: We have realigned the projects website to make it clearer and launched sections such as:
    1. Data Hub:  which relates to data and community response this includes very interesting data visualisation shared with us by Conor Gleeson & Adam Corcoran (thanks gusy)

  1. Dissemination: We launched a FB group specifically for social media managers of community pages to join.  
  2. 3D Printed Handle Extensions: Our friends in Engineers Without Borders are leading a project related to this project. Check out their page for ongoing updates.

We will endeavour to keep you updated going forward if you’re interested in helping any of these projects or utilising any of these tools. Please contact us at
