This conference was organised by the RESPOND project, in collaboration with the COVINFORM, PERISCOPE, RESISTIRÉ, and SHARE-COVID19 projects.
The Sister Project Conference, held on September 7th in Brussels, marked a significant milestone in collaborative efforts addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. This groundbreaking event brought together five distinguished projects: PERISCOPE, RESPOND, COVINFORM, RESISTIRÉ, and SHARE. All of these projects have received funding from the European Union’s SARS-CoV-2 grant, a vital component of the “Innovative and rapid health-related approaches to respond to COVID-19 and to deliver quick results for society for a higher level of preparedness of health systems (SC1-PHE- CORONAVIRUS-2020-2)” initiative. This initiative stands as a testament to the remarkable collaborative spirit driving research and policy recommendations aimed at navigating the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuring the preparedness of health.
Enea Parimbelli (University of Pavia), representing the PERISCOPE project, delivered an insightful presentation on "PERISCOPE Data Atlas: data integration and analytics for policymaking." Additionally, Timothy Yueng (CEPS) provided valuable reflections on lessons learned for EU public health emergency governance at the Promoting Pandemic Preparedness conference.
