PERISCOPE Final Conference

8 September 2023 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm


We are thrilled to announce the final conference of the PERISCOPE project, taking place on September 8th in Brussels!

After more than 2 years investigating the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, PERISCOPE will share key results in its final conference – From Data Science and Socio-Economic Research to Policy and Technology – Learning from COVID-19 to Build Better Health and Care in Europe.

The event will delve into the socio-economic and behavioural impacts resulting from the policies implemented in response to the pandemic and examine how policy responses have influenced the path towards better health outcomes in Europe. Over the course of the project, PERISCOPE’s team has been at the forefront of data science, economic research, and technological innovations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, as the project nears its end, it is time to reflect on the collective efforts and the valuable lessons learned.

This full-day conference will present the project’s policy recommendations and will gather researchers, policymakers and representatives from medical institutions.

The programme overview is preliminary and will be completed with more details in the next weeks.

Please register if you are interested in attending this event. Be sure to save your seat!
