The project “Simulating the expansion of the COVID-19 outbreak: a risk forecast tool considering socioeconomic and gender inequalities in Barcelona” led by Pere Masjuan awarded a Scientific Research Awards by the Barcelona city council.
On Tuesday 16, March 2021, the Barcelona city council announced the Scientific Research Awards to the 15 selected proposals for solving urban challenges in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic
The project “Simulating the expansion of the COVID-19 outbreak: a risk forecast tool considering socioeconomic and gender inequalities in Barcelona” was one of the projects awarded. Pere Masjuan, member of the IFAE Theory Division, is leading this project with the aim to develop a software tool to simulate COVID-19 spread by leveraging newly available demographic, mobility, and health data based on group theory techniques.
