Project description

Unravelling the complexity of urban health

Population growth, energy use, mobility and urbanisation are all factors that impact health and mortality rates. Moreover, studies show that health deterioration is affected by socio-economic status, gender, age and ethnicity and that cities represent places where health issues abound. However, in cities there are more opportunities for structural transformations in lifestyle and health status. The EU-funded SURREAL project will deliver a unique, creative and single training network for 15 early-stage researchers to co-create an understanding of the urban health system's complexity and co-design and apply adequate interventions in the system. The project will draw upon interactions between academic disciplines such as epidemiology and public health and a wide range of entities such as medical centres, public authorities and NGOs.
