The ESCAPE project will develop new insights, methods and blueprints to tackle a possible future 'Pathogen X' pandemic.
ESCAPE's main objective is to improve the efficiency and scalability of early pandemic response plans by providing stakeholders with evidence-based guidelines, standardised research protocols, retroactive insights and digital solutions.
The project will contribute to fostering an intelligent community allowing improved knowledge sharing and cooperation between policy-makers, the scientific community, the media and the public, ensuring a much more effective response to future pandemics.
Our research questions are grouped into four intersecting domains:
WP2: Blueprint Development
Characterisation of Pathogens
Decision Tool Development
Determinants of success
WP5: Determinants of success
Indicators of success and failure
Statistical and efficiency analysis
Understanding behavioural changes
Data needs and
Analytics & Tools
WP1: Ethics Requirement
WP6: Intelligent Community
Strenghtening the knowledge base
Increase science literacy
Dissemination to the community
WP7: Project management
