Pandemic Virus Trace Application for the Effective Knowledge Transfer Between Science and Society Inside the Quadruple Helix Collaboration

Project: EU project

Project Details


The concept of PandeVITA enables knowledge transfer between society and science inside of the quadruple helix on the European level. With help of the PandeVITA app, the consortium will create and execute an innovative evaluation concept based on different feedback categories to measure social awareness and acceptability of scientific recommendations and advices. This will include a concept for RRI standards which excludes the uncontrolled transfer of sensitive data provided by citizens for scientific purposes. The PandeVITA project is structured in five stages. After a short stage 1 where basic project preparations will be executed, good practise analysis and framework developments will be proceeded in stage 2. This includes case studies about public health systems in four different countries, comparative reviews about applications which are already developed, and specifications of all data to be collected throughout the project regards privacy, trust, improvements, storage and other areas relevant for the Data Management Plan and for communication, dissemination and exploitation. Stage 3 is mainly dedicated to comparative and case studies where legal and ethical frameworks in different countries as well as decisions and sanctions of politics during the COVID-19 crisis analysed and different case studies about co-operations between science and society in health sectors during the COVID-19 crisis as well as societal voluntariness of participation and trust in knowledge exchange between science and society during the COVID-19 pandemic will be executed. Beside the PandeVITA app and platform will be developed which will be evaluated in stage 4 regarding usability, user experience and adoption as well as efficiency and effectiveness. In the last stage 5, final releases of the PandeVITA app and platform will be proceeded and an exploitation plan will be developed before PandeVITA becomes an independent and everlasting community.
