ARTIC and CLIMB-BIG-DATA joint workshop

14th – 15th January 2021

Together with the ARTIC network, we organised a two-day workshop about COVID-19 data analysis. All the information related to the workshop is shared on this page, including the recordings.

“Theory” (live sessions) and “practice” (homework) are separate, so everyone will be able to choose what to take or to do from this course at their own pace.


We created a Slack workspace for chat and questions. Although it was initially thought to be used by participants only, we appreciate it might be useful for others too. We need to make sure the Slack channel is properly used and looked after; please, fill this form to request access.
