Role Organisation will play within project:
The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) and the Radboud university medical center (Radboudumc) are proud to be part of the PANDEM-2 project as team from the Netherlands. Together we will be representing the end users and will provide input for the various sub-projects; we will develop training courses and test their feasibility and the feasibility of the IT systems developed.
The RIVM team is led by Aura Timen, head of the National Coordination of Infectious Disease Control (LCI), and Mart Stein, LCI research coordinator. The Radboudumc is represented by infectiologist and Doctor Chantal Bleeker, physician-microbiologist Joost Hopman and epidemiologist Alma Tostmann. The different backgrounds in the team provide a wide range of knowledge, experience and practical insight to support the development and implementation of the programs and systems to be put in place as a result of the PANDEM-2 project.
