BEPREP is an EU-funded project spanning 14 institutions. The project investigates how biodiversity restoration projects alone, or along with public health interventions, can prevent future pandemics. Guidence and best practices will be identified through a number of spatially and temporally replicated case studies. The work package being undertaken at CHICAS is to provide statistical expertise to the wider project. This involves the development of novel spatio-temporal models and their application to relevant diseases. A current example is Hantavirus in Sweden.
