Flavia Bueno (TGHN)


On October 25 and 26, two international webinars will take place, organized by Fiocruz's Vice-Presidency for Education, Information and Communication (VPEIC), in a partnership involving the Fiocruz Hub team  at the Fiocruz Global Health Network (TGHN Fiocruz) with other institutions: the webinar “Introduction to R for Health Data Science” (October 25) and “Using Data and Interdisciplinary Concepts in Research: The Trajectories Project” (October 26). Both events will have simultaneous translation into English, Portuguese and Spanish and will be broadcast on Zoom. 

The webinar “Introduction to R for Health Data Science” starts at 8 am (Brasília), 12 pm (UK) on October 25 with speakers from Oxford University in the UK, the International Center for Diarrheal Disease Research in Bangladesh (icddr,b) and the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio) who are already using R programming and its applications in health data research. R is an open-source programming language used to interact with data science in terms of data manipulation, analysis and visualization. Register until the event day via the Zoom platform  and read the article on the TGHN/Fiocruz page for more details

The event on the 26th, entitled “Using Data and Interdisciplinary Concepts in Research: The Trajectories Project”, takes place at 9 am (Brasília), 1 pm (UK) and has been organized along with the Fiocruz Scientific Computing Program (Procc /Fiocruz). In this webinar, the speakers will present the Trajectories Project dataset, which gathers economic, environmental and health data, and its objectives. The Trajectories Project was created in a partnership between Fiocruz, the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) and the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq). It is one of the SinBiose/CNPq synthesis projects. You can register for the webinar via the Zoom platform  until the day of the event. Read the full article on the TGHN/Fiocruz website.
