European Urban Health Cluster: ENLIGHTENme joins the second annual meeting
The Urban Health Cluster, the first European Cluster to improve and safeguard health and wellbeing of citizens leaving no one behind, is holding its second annual meeting in Valencia, Spain on October 27-28.
ENLIGHTENme is part of the Urban Health Cluster alongside five other research projects funded under the same call of the Horizon 2020 European Framework Porgramme: eMOTIONAL Cities, HEART, RECETAS, URBANOME and WELLBASED.
Core aspects of the Cluster’s vision are to deliver more robust evidence for policy making on improved urban health in the EU, improve populations’ physical and/or mental health in urban areas of the EU and reduce health inequities.
Representatives from the European Commission DG RTD, project coordinators and consortia members of the six Horizon 2020 projects, representatives of European Initiatives and Networks, will meet for the second annual Urban Health Cluster.
The meeting will advance the urban health agenda through discussions of the technical aspects of urban health research and the translation of these research areas into policy and actions. Cluster members will review progress made over the past 18 months and prepare for the next phase of the Cluster through working group sessions on science translation, health determinants and urban interventions, data protection, urban issues and epidemics, dissemination and communication, and citizen science and urban health.
The event will take place in-person with online participation options for those who plan to attend remotely. The participation is free of charge. To register please click here.
