The Publication Office of the European Union will organise a webinar  COVID-19 and air quality on 23 April 2020 from 16.00 – 17.30 CET.

 

Agenda:

EMM and MediSys: Media monitoring and Media data access for Covid-19 crisis analysis

 Speaker: Guillaume Jacquet, Joint Research Centre, European Commission.

The freely accessible Europe Media Monitor (EMM) is a fully automatic system that analyses both traditional and social media. It gathers and aggregates about 300,000 news articles per day from news portals world-wide in up to 70 languages.

MEDISYS is a media monitoring system providing event-based surveillance to rapidly identify potential public health threats using information from media reports. The system displays only those articles with interest to public health (e. g. diseases, plant pests, psychoactive substances), analyses news reports and warns users with automatically generated alerts.

It provides a live news feed about COVID-19 and a live RSS feed associated with coronovirus. It is publicly available, and anyone can build applications on top of that.

The information processed by MEDISYS is derived from the Europe Media Monitor (EMM).

 

Monitoring the research landscape on Coronavirus with Tools for Innovation Monitoring (TIM)

 Speaker: Geraldine Joanny, Joint Research Centre, European Commission.

The effect of the coronavirus on society and the global economy is unprecedented and it will need to trigger extraordinary research efforts. arch Centre is monitoring the research landscape on Coronavirus with TIM analytics, which relies on datasets containing scientific publications, patents, and EU-funded R&D projects.

The interactive tool allows the user to navigate the data and customise the visualisation using filters, showing cumulated values, bar charts.

A Coronavirus public space in TIM has been made available for anybody to explore and navigate the data.

 

European Crisis Management Laboratory - ECML

 Speaker: Alessandro Annunziato, Joint Research Centre, European Commission.

The tool provides an overview of the monitoring in the area of the 34 European Union Civil Protection Mechanism (UCPM) participating states plus Switzerland, related to:

  • sub-national data (admin level 1) on numbers of contagious and fatalities by COVID-19, collected directly from the National Authoritative sources (National monitoring websites, when available);
  • containment measures adopted by National Authorities to reduce transmission of COVID-19, daily updated.

Information is crucial to further developing and assessing epidemiologic models for forecasting caseloads in different containment and exit scenarios, to support the National Authorities and to build a European response to COVID-19. Moreover, the sub-national granularity of the data allows having a fit-for-purpose model to early capture the local spread and response to the COVID-19.
