GenTORE presented at Interbull meeting 2017, Tallinn
During last Interbull meeting in Tallinn (Estonia), project coordinator Nic Friggens was invited to give a presentation about the GenTORE project and the benefits for potential stakeholders. The presentation was received well and generated discussions about managing large databases and the definition of resilience. It was noted that within GenTORE, the broadest definition of resilience is used; this means that also disease response and recovery are taken into consideration.
GenTORE hopes to benefit from experiences from prior projects when it comes to managing the databases, especially when it comes to differences in ownership.
Students motivated by resilience and efficiency science
