One of our project partners (dis.ijs.si), was among the two grand winners of the XPrize Pandemic Response Challange (https://www.xprize.org/challenge/pandemicresponse) organized by XPrize and sponsored by Cognizant.

The solution by Jozef Stefan Institute combined classical epidemiological models, machine learning and multiobjective optimization using evolutionary algorithms.
