In April 2020, Zenodo launched a Coronavirus Research Community - COVID-19 accepting data from all scientific disciplines and sub-disciplines.

Zenodo is compliant with the data management requirements of Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe, the EU's research and innovation funding programmes. "The OpenAIRE project, in the vanguard of the open access and open data movements in Europe, was commissioned by the EC to support their nascent Open Data policy by providing a catch-all repository for EC funded research. CERN an OpenAIRE partner and pioneer in open source, open access and open data, provides this capability."
