Professor Serpa awarded grant to monitor COVID-19’s impact on business


Published: 8May2020

McGill University has awarded Professor Juan Serpa with MI4 Emergency COVID-19 Research Funding to monitor COVID-19’s impact on business in Canada and across the world. Titled Quebec Data Central for Impact of Covid-19 on Society and Business and for a Post-Pandemic World, the one-year project aims to support businesses, researchers and policymakers in making informed decisions in the post-COVID era.

Professor Serpa and his team of researchers will build a large-scale data centre that connects micro-level data—from local and provincial businesses, retailers, and supply chains—with macro-level socioeconomic and epidemiologic data about the pandemic.

This grant follows Professor Serpa’s development of COVID QC, a dashboard created in collaboration with McGill analytics and engineering students to monitor COVID-19 cases in Montreal and Quebec.
