Research project Environmental factors are significant drivers of infectious diseases. Land‐use patterns, such as intensive agriculture, deforestation, irrigation or road construction, and climate variability and change, are important determinants of infectious disease spread. Decision makers need predictive models of disease to underpin their strategies and decisions to prevent and control outbreaks
Merging environmental, satellite, demographic, etc data sets and integrating their data requirements would allow for the analysis of complex interactions and generate essential information that increases our understanding of these systems. Identifying long‐term projections would build the evidence base for strategic public health action while identifying short‐term events linked to environmental conditions would help improve and accelerate early warning and response capability. This tender aims to support the European Environment and Epidemiology (E3) Network with epidemiologic modeling of environmental drivers of infectious diseases.
