EU toolbox for mobile applications for contact tracing and warning

Mobile apps have the potential to bolster contact tracing strategies to contain and reverse the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, the EU Member States have created a common EU toolbox,  developed collaboratively by the e-Health Network with the support of the European Commission on mobile applications to support contact tracing in the EU’s fight against COVID-19.

The common approach aims to exploit the latest privacy-enhancing technological solutions that enable at-risk individuals to be contacted and, if necessarily, to be tested as quickly as possible, regardless of their location.

In the document provided by the e-Health Network, you also find an overview of the COVID-19 apps currently available. For further information about eHealth, visit the EC Website.
