The Group on Earth Observations is sharing information on an upcoming webinar focused on Early Warning for Epidemics using dynamic models, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and space technology on 9 July 2020.
The BEYOND Centre of EO Research and Satellite Remote Sensing of the Institute for Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space Applications and Remote Sensing (IAASARS) of the National Observatory of Athens, in collaboration with the leading company in mosquito control and data analytics Ecodevelopment S.A., the Laboratory of Atmospheric Physics of the University of Patras - Physics Department, and along with several European organisations from Italy, France, Germany and Serbia, that serve research purposes, perform mosquito control activities, belong to health and decision making sectors, has seized the initiative to develop an Early Warning System for combating the West Nile Virus.
The workshop aims to reach members of the vector-borne diseases, epidemics communities and decision makers, bring together interdisciplinary teams across the entire value chain, and demonstrate through selected use cases the value provided by the advanced European scientific and technological assets towards the development of robust, reliable, scalable, and replicable system solutions to combat mosquito-borne diseases using EO space technologies and AI. The webinars will present advanced and validated solutions for reliable short-term and mid-term forecasting of human cases and mosquito populations at various geographic scales in Europe.
