 Project objective

Several organisations active in the health care market make decisions based on an estimation of the number of individuals infected with an infectious disease. These organisations benefit from a timely and trust-worthy prediction of the number of infected individuals. To date, infectious disease predictions tools are inadequate because they typically include limited and domain-specific data and because the translation to impact for specific stakeholders in the healthcare market is lacking. DEFOG proposes a data science solution as we will integrate classical surveillance data, pharmacy sales data, out-of-hours general practitioners data and social contact data in a novel real-time forecasting tool that will yield better and more rapid warning signals of the number of infected cases. DEFOG will produce software and know-how under intellectual property of the principal investigator which will be exploited through licence agreements with and consultancy services for various stakeholders. DEFOG will build on recent advances in mathematical modelling for infectious diseases as part of the original ERC-TransMID project. The team offers a vast amount of expertise in mathematical and infectious disease modelling, computational processing, business development and has an extensive collaborative network with research centres, regulatory agencies and companies, of which 4 entities already expressed interest in exploring the use and/or sharing data for of the proposed innovative real-time disease forecasting tool.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "DEFOG" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
