The INCEPTION Workshop/Training/Visiting Scientist call aims to strengthen existing networks, to build new networks of national and international cross cooperation and to encourage the exchange of ideas and concepts in all the areas relevant to the INCEPTION program. Using Integrative Biology, Social Science and Data Science, the INCEPTION program aims to understand the Emergence of Diseases in Populations and in Individuals, gathering different fields of expertise (biology, medicine, computer science, mathematics, statistics, physics, and social sciences). It is addressing societal challenges related to diseases emergence as:
- Global surveillance and monitoring
- Multi-scale analyses , integrating the ecosystem
- Social sphere to define health policies
- New methodological approaches to make sense of biological big data
All workshop/Training/Visiting Scientist proposals on topics within the frame of the INCEPTION program, will be considered.
