Born out of the #WirVsVirus hackathon in March 2020 and further developed at #EUvsVirus, LabHive.org is an online-tool to match qualified researchers and labs offering their under-utilized resources (labour, equipment, reagents, experience with lab techniques or data analysis) and needs of diagnostic laboratories. This innovative concept emerged as a response to the Covid-19 testing crisis, however it has potential to change science management and collaboration in the future.
