This week, Disaster Tech and the Crisis Technologies Innovation Lab, a partnership between the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering and Indiana University's University Information Technology Services, has been awarded a $2.3 million contract from the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center to create data science capabilities that can enhance patient care for COVID-19 and provide better responses to disasters.
The past decades have demonstrated that performance science, data science, and communications technologies can provide critical improvements in processes and services with the incorporation of good data, thoughtful analytics, a human-centered approach, and governance structures that permit change. Yet, little change has been implemented. This project aims to bring desperately needed change to the industry with the convergence of leaders in academia, the private and public sectors.

Save lives and build resiliency by ensuring mental health is top of mind.
After a year of record-breaking disasters and a sustained global pandemic, we must be open and honest about mental health challenges facing our colleagues, family, and friends during Mental Health Awareness Month. At Disaster Tech, we’re taking measures to ensure employees have the resources they need to take care of themselves and their families. This includes designating a company-wide mental health day, as well as offering group workshops with wellness experts.
Our fire blog is lightning up the disaster industry! Be in the volca-know with the latest news as we ava-launch the Data science Integrated Collaboration Environment (DICE). We won't flood you with too much information, but we hope you stop, drop, and roll by to hear what we've been up to.
