Villum synergy is a program aiming to strengthen interdisciplinary research and collaborations that combine methodological expertise within data science with domain expertise in other research areas such as technical, natural, or social sciences. This year, 15 projects have been selected and awarded a grant of DKK 3 million each to enhance such collaborations.
One of the selected projects is “Maximizing well-being with AI under deep climate turmoil – MA’AT“. The project is lead by our group leader Professor Francisco Camara Pereira and Professor Karyn Morrissey from the Climate Economics and Risk Management division at DTU.
MA’AT aims to develop a versatile AI-driven digital twin tool that simulates mobility and climate events, focusing on long-term adaptation strategies for challenges like heavy rainfall and flooding, with Copenhagen as an initial case study; the tool integrates health, environmental, and social factors to assist cities in making informed decisions for a climate-impacted future.
Congrats Francisco and Karyn!
