PULSE (Participatory Urban Living for Sustainable Environments)™ is a new international project funded by the European Commission (Horizon 2020) to undertake research and innovation in cities in Europe, the United States and Asia. The project began at the close 2016 and will continue for three years.
PULSE will leverage diverse data sources and big data analytics to transform public health from a reactive to a predictive system, and from a system focused on surveillance to an inclusive and collaborative system supporting health equity.
Working within five global cities, PULSE will harvest open city data, and data from health systems, urban and remote sensors, personal devices and social media to enable evidence-driven and timely management of public health events and processes.
The clinical focus of the project will be respiratory diseases (asthma) and metabolic disease (type 2 diabetes) in adult population.
The project will develop risk stratifications models based on modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors in each urban location, taking account of biological.
