The EPIWORK project proposes a multidisciplinary research effort aimed at developing the approriate framework of tools and knowledge needed for the design of epidemic forecast infrastructures. The research considers most of the much needed development of modeling, computational and ICT tools such as i) the foundation and development of the mathematical and computational methods needed to achieve prediction and predictability of disease spreading in complex social systems; ii) the development of large scale, data driven computational models endowed with a high level of realism and aimed at epidemic scenario forecast; iii) the design and implemention of original data-collection schemes motivated by identified modelling needs; iv) the set up of a computational platform for epidemic research and data sharing.
