Save the date, 16 February
It has been almost a year since the Coronavirus hit our society. Since then, technological applications and initiatives have multiplied in an attempt to control the situation, treat patients effectively and to ease the efforts of overburdened healthcare workers, while waiting for an effective vaccine available to the whole population.
The pandemic has also presented a unique opportunity for the development of digital information and surveillance technologies to gather reliable data and evidence to support public health decisions. Artificial intelligence, Robots and Drones are being deployed to help track the disease and enforce restrictive measures, while scientists are working with synthetic biology and Nanotechnology in an attempt to prepare and test future vaccines, treatments and diagnostics. Blockchain applications can help track the spread or maintain the medical supply chain. In addition, 3D Printing combined with open source technologies has been able to deliver medical equipment (e.g. masks, ventilators and respiratory filters) at the height of the health crisis. At the same time, Telemedicine technologies have become an alternative to face-to-face medical assistance.
From secpho promotes the Anticovid Technologies Day to gain more detailed insights about some developments in the field of Deep Tech that have proven to be a powerful ally in the research of the behaviour of the virus, its detection and prevention.
The event will be held in Spanish.
