EU H2020 Project: PULSE

THE PULSE PROJECT       (from the Proposal)

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.

The PULSE Project will engage in a collaborative dialogue with a range of stakeholders across five global cities – Paris, Barcelona, Birmingham, New York and Singapore – to transform public health from a reactive to a predictive system, focused on both risk and resilience.

The PULSE project will combine a unique Big Data ecosystem with innovative approaches to Big Data analytics. The Project will be the first to build an integrated systems-of-systems approach to public health challenges in cities.
