Events and training


Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the UK, the following events have been postponed until further notice. 

An introduction to agent-based models for population health 
This workshop is aimed at population health decision makers and researchers who are keen to find out more about what agent-based models are, and how they can be used to address complex population health challenges. 

Applying simulation methods to population health questions 
This workshop is aimed at those with expertise in simulation methods or their application in other areas who are interested in applying these methods to population health. The workshop will explore how the complex systems underlying population health challenges can be captured with modelling approaches.
