The majority of Europe’s population live in urban areas characterised by inland waterways and coastal margins.

BlueHealth is researching how these environments can affect health promotion and disease, and is working with communities, private sector organisations and policymakers to ensure its findings are focused and relevant.

The programme involves specialists from countries across the EU and runs from January 2016 to June 2020.
