PULSE has engaged in a collaborative dialogue with a range of stakeholders across seven global cities to transform public health from a reactive to a predictive system focused on both risk and resilience. Read more about the project.

To accomplish the transformation of public health systems, and stimulate the development of intersectoral policy in cities, the PULSE Project will leverage large amounts of data from city governments, health systems, and citizens (via sensing technologies and social media).
PULSE has chosen to work directly with cities in response to the significance accorded to the EU Urban Agenda, and in recognition of the fact that urbanisation is a major driver of the public health risks we will address. It is in cities that solutions can be found and resilience can be scaled up.
