The school covers global aspects of COVID-19 pandemic, including the medical challenges, models for the virus spread, economic and social consequences:

  • Mathematical modelling of the COVID-19 outbreak
  • COVID-19 outbreak: similarities and differences with previous pandemics
  • An economic model of optimal lockdown
  • SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19: the past, present, and future perspectives
  • Epidemiological aspects:
    • Data collection and interpretation
    • Population testing and tracing
    • Conception and design (illustrated through a current German Coronavirus study)

WHAT PEDAGOGICAL METHODS/TOOLS ARE APPLIED?

Lectures by online video streaming, interactive communication tools, teamwork, networking.

HOW ATTENDENCE IS AWARDED?

EUGLOH Certificate and 4 ECTS will be provided for the students attending the school.
