eScience Center awards funding to four research projects focused on COVID-19
16 April 2020
With these projects, the eScience Center will use its expertise in research software development to help address the current pandemic.
The Netherlands eScience Center has awarded funding to four innovative research proposals related to the Covid-19 pandemic. The selected projects will run between 3 and 12 months and receive in-kind research engineering support. With these projects, the eScience Center will use its expertise in research software development to help address the current pandemic.
The projects span several domains and focus on monitoring and analysing public sentiment to government measures and announcements, the relation between COVID-19 and heart disease, the development of a tailored model to inform public health interventions for infection diseases in the Netherlands, and the refinement of a platform to enable the development and deployment of machine learning algorithms for the automated scoring of CT scans to detect and assess the severity of COVID-19.
