Abstract for: Understanding foodborne transmission mechanisms for Norovirus (System Dynamics Applications Award Winner)

The System Dynamics Applications Award is presented by the Society as often as every year for the best “real world” application of System Dynamics. The best application is based primarily on demonstrated measurable benefit to an organization through the use of System Dynamics, and secondarily for new ideas that improve the art of applying System Dynamics, or for relating work to existing System Dynamics literature and/or other disciplines. The work must have been conducted within ten years of the submission deadline. In 2020 the award was given to Darren Holland, Elke Husemann, Abdul Khaled, and David Lane, for their work on "Understanding foodborne transmission mechanisms for Norovirus: A study for the UK's Food Standards Agency."
