Fraunhofer ITWM vs. Corona: With Mathematics Against the Crisis

Project EpiDeMSE Supports Local Decision Makers in Planning Actions in the Corona Crisis

Press Release / May 11, 2020

Especially when an infectious disease is new, mathematical models help to answer the two most important questions: How will the infection spread and what actions are appropriate and effective to contain it? In order to support local decision makers (health authorities, hospitals and especially municipalities) in planning their actions, researchers of the Fraunhofer ITWM are working on the epidemiological modeling, simulation and decision support of Covid-19 within the framework of the Fraunhofer Society's Anti-Corona Program (project name EpiDeMSE).
