The main goal of ASSET project is to develop a comprehensive strategy for a better response to infectious diseases by improving dialogue and cooperation between science and society.
The ASSET project aims to:
forge a partnership with complementary perspectives, knowledge and experiences to address effectively scientific and societal challenges raised by pandemics and associated crisis management
explore and map SiS-related issues in global pandemics
