The Data Science Lab team of Politecnico di Milano, led by Prof. Marco Brambilla (Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering), participates in the H2020 PERISCOPE project (Pan-European Response To The Impacts Of Covid-19 And Future Pandemics And Epidemics), funded by the European Commission with almost 10 million Euros under the Coronavirus Global Response initiative launched in May 2020 by the European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.
The project, that involves 32 European institutions coordinated by the University of Pavia, aims to investigate and shed light into the socio-economic and behavioral impacts of COVID-19, to make Europe more resilient and prepared for future large-scale risks.
A multidisciplinary consortium will bring together experts in various sectors: clinic and epidemiologic; socio-economic and political; statistical and technological. The partners of the consortium will carry out theoretical and experimental research to contribute to a deeper understanding of the short- and long-term impacts of the pandemic and the measures adopted to contain it.
