Data Readiness

Access to up-to-date, sustainable data streams and epidemiological studies is crucial in supporting scientists to understand and respond effectively to a Pathogen X pandemic.This programme of work is focused on increasing the availability of high-quality data streams and readiness in various ways. Through a comprehensive review of public and private sector data streams, ESCAPE is working to identify the most pressing data needs and current availability. We will map and create a web-based atlas of epidemiological cohort studies, to support the scientific community in identifying the advantages and disadvantages of different methodological approaches.  Alongside these efforts, ESCAPE is establishing a network of data stewards to  facilitate swift and easy access to necessary data.
