    The Centre for Cooperation Development of UPC has granted the funding for two projects lead by DTIM.

    The first project, on the topic of data interoperability for specialized outbreak management systems, is the continuation of an ongoing project with the main focus on (but not limited to) COVID-19 pandemics challenges. The project is done in collaboration with Jesus Alcober, Toni Oller, and Juan Lopéz from Castelldefels School of Telecommunications and Aerospace Engineering (EETAC) of UPC and Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network (GOARN) of the World Health Oranization.

    The second project, entitled "For an improvement of Health through rapid and economic diagnosis (iH-red). Imaging platform development for Malaria, Tuberculosis and NTDs", will support the ongoing collaboration with Probitas Foundation and Vall d’Hebron Institut de Recerca (VHIR) with the main goal of developing an imaging platform by using artificial intelligence techniques for automated diagnosis of malaria, tuberculosis and neglected tropical diseases.
