Covid-19 Data-Driven Task Force | Ministry of Innovation

A key project focused on COVID-19 developed by our Lab is in collaboration with the data-driven task force for this emergency, created by the Ministry of Innovation of Italy. We work in the group “Web Data and socio-economic impact”, led by S. Denicolai (‘DigITA4good’ coordinator), W. Quattrociocchi and A. Lacalamita.

About Us

DigITA4good Lab's research focuses on the use of digital technologies and data streams for emergency response and sustainable development.

We use digital technologies and analyze digital data streams to find solutions for emergency events and sustainable development. We put special attention to multiple dimensions of biodiversity (e.g. cultural, social, skills, environmental resources). Our work helps decision-makers responding to unpredicted events like diseases spread, natural disasters, etc.

We partner with companies to derive data-driven insights on the socio-economic impact of such unpredictable events. Our international research team is based at the University of Pavia and embraces scholars from institutes such as Harvard Business School or Oxford Big Data Institute.
