New network to study harmful effects of city living
By 2100, 85 % of the world’s population will live in cities. In Europe, the level of urbanisation is expected to jump from 74 % today to 75 % in 2020 and 83.7 % in 2050. Cities are economic engines of the global economy but also hubs of environmental pollution. The EU-funded URBAN_X project will develop a strategic partnership between Barcelona’s Institute for Global Health (ISGLOBAL), the Czech Republic’s RECETOX Centre and the University College London. Together, they will study the quality of life and health of urban populations using advanced statistical and machine learning methods.
