Localised environmental and health information services for all: User-centric collaborative decision support network for water and air quality management

Project description


ICT for Environmental Management and Energy Efficiency

The main goal of the LENVIS project is to develop an innovative collaborative decision support network for exchange of location-based environmental and health services between all stakeholders, for enhanced capacity to assess population exposure and health risks and better management of the concerned ecosystems. LENVIS will include health indicators as integral part of the environmental management.
There is a growing demand for real time and integrated environmental and health risk information. Provision of such location-based services linked to the state of the environment at particular geographical locations (addresses) is necessary for improving the quality of life of all people. This is essential for mitigation of environmental-related health threats associated to water quantity and quality, and outdoor air pollutions.
LENVIS project aims to fill the existing gap between environmental management and the health management systems. This will be done by developing a generic ICT solution that combines service-oriented-architecture (SOA) and user-centric approach (peer-to-peer network, P2P) by fusion of location-based environmental and health data, information and modelling services. This novel collaborative peer-to-peer network, as an integral part of the Single Information Space for the Environment in Europe, will be validated through test cases on fresh surface water and outdoor air quality in the Netherlands, Portugal and Italy.
LENVIS project will facilitate collaboration between different stakeholders, such as environmental protection agencies, health institutions and service providers, policy makers, citizens in general and environmental communities in Europe.
