The project

In the TRIGGER project, multidisciplinary studies are carried out to determine the direct and indirect effects of climate-related health risks. This includes carrying out clinical studies in five real-world laboratories scattered across Europe, collecting a wide range of data on climate, environment, health and socio-economics, developing and testing various tools, apps and sensors, and co-creating innovative solutions together with citizens, experts and decision-makers.

Our activities in the project

At LIFE, we support the translation of the innovative solutions developed into viable products and services and evaluate their benefits for Europe’s citizens. We are also responsible for managing and implementing the project activities dedicated to summarizing the conclusions of the research for political implementation at regional, national and European level.

Details of the project

TRIGGER aims to deepen the current understanding of the complex relationships between climate, human health and ecosystems and to utilise this knowledge in practice. The aim is to promote social acceptance at both a personal and political level.

TRIGGER is establishing a series of demonstration labs to scientifically validate the improvement of knowledge about pathologies and diseases that may occur in response to a changing climate. In these Climate-Health Connection (CHC) Labs, citizens are part of a co-design mechanism in which healthy behaviours are identified in a specific urban, cultural, climatic and socio-economic context through customised monitoring of environmental and health-related parameters and ad hoc clinical investigations.
