Research Roadmap: Computing for preparedness and resilience for the next pandemic.
When we speak of the next pandemic, it's no longer a question of "if" but "when". The NSF research community is uniquely situated to ensure that the multidisciplinary and cutting-edge science completed through the CISE directorate can help society address the challenges of the next pandemic. From online education to social media misinformation to vaccination distribution, CISE scientists are poised to make a tremendous impact through the creation of a pandemic roadmap.
The PREPARE roadmap will serve as a blueprint for researchers, funding agencies, and policy makers on the role of computing in developing breakthrough solutions for pandemic preparedness and resilience.
PREPARE will facilitate communication and collaboration among NSF CISE scientists currently involved in pandemic research, including those supported through the NSF RAPID program. With the guidance of a Steering Committee composed of members from industry, academia, and government agencies, we will encourage the sharing of research results in a way not available without a concerted effort.
