iASiS Team @EUvsVirus Hackathon

21 May 2020

On 24-26 April, the European Commission, hosted EUvsVirushackathon, the first pan-European hackathon to connect civil society, innovators, partners, and investors across Europe in order to develop innovative solutions for coronavirus-related challenges.

Members of our iASiS project partners joined up to a small team that participated in the Hackathon, together with another 2500 teams!

This participation was achieved in a duration of a few days and aimed to showcase that the technologies that have been built in the project can swiftly be re-purposed to other business challenges.

In this instance, the drug-drug interaction discovery methodology, on top of the iASiS Knowledge Graph, was put in action.

The team was composed of the following members:

  • The Scientific Data Management group at TIB (SDM): Anery Patel, Ariam Rivas, Ahmad Sakor, Vitalis Wiens, and Maria-Esther Vidal (Technical team) and Gabriela Ydler (dissemination).
  • The Software and Knowledge Engineering Laboratory at NCSR (SKEL): Kostantinos Bougiatiotis, Fotis Aisopos, Anastasia Krithara, and George Paliouras
