    This report is the first in a short series of WARCnet papers which aim
    to provide feedback on an internal datathon conducted by Working Group 2 of
    the WARCnet project. It explores the creation of transnational merged datasets
    and corpora, based on seed lists, derived data and metadata provided by
    several web archiving institutions. The report highlights our first explorations of
    specially curated COVID web archives, in order to prepare an in-depth
    exploration of the issues, challenges, limitations and opportunities afforded by
    these heterogeneous datasets.
