Creating a COVID-19 dataset: Challenges and opportunities

Event cover picture

The Copenhagen Center for Disaster Research and the School of Global Health at the University of Copenhagen are pleased to invite you to an online talk with Lars Peter Nissen from ACAPS.

Lars Peter Nissen will speak about ACAPS’ work on compiling a COVID-19 dataset predominantly focusing on the immediate, short and medium-term secondary effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

ACAPS has been striving towards a global analysis, providing a broad overview of the situation overall, as well as context specific analysis, with a narrower focus on regions, countries and crisis hot spots.

Lars will talk for approximately 30 minutes, followed by a 15 minutes Q&A.
