One of our most significant challenges is to ensure that data is consistent, valid, and representative. We also must consider the organization of access to data, privacy, and ethical considerations. We sample drinking water, animal manure, dust on surfaces and wastewater. We investigate methods for representative sampling and obtaining sufficient virus material in an effective and reproducible way.
We will work with several stakeholders, including local and national healthcare organizations, port authorities and Customs in our Living Lab. This collaboration allows us to validate and translate our results into necessary actions.
