This work has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement MOOD N° 874850.

The MOOD project

With climate change, animal and human mobility, growing populations and urbanization, there is now an increased risk of the emergence and accelerated the global spread of new pathogens. It is crucial that the emergence of a pathogen can be rapidly detected and assessed for the risk it poses to public health through all all the available sources of data. 

With the funds provided by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 ‘Research and innovation programme ( grant agreement No 874850), the MOnitoring Outbreaks for Disease surveillance in a data science context (MOOD) project aims at taking advantage of data mining, analysis and visualization of health, environmental and other data to enhance the utility of event-based surveillance (EBS). Ultimately, MOOD is supporting the work of European and global public and veterinary health agencies and surveillance practitioners by providing existing monitoring platforms with novel features, and methodological and practical support adapted to their needs. 

The MOnitoring Outbreaks for Disease surveillance in a data science context (MOOD) project aims to develop innovative tools and services in close collaboration with those working in the early detection, assessment, and monitoring of current and potential infectious disease threats in Europe and beyond. This will involve feedback sessions and demos of the tools under development.

Module 1: Data & covariates access

A one-stop “shop” for the visualization and download of relevant standardized covariates relative to the MOOD model diseases and, more generally, to infectious disease emergence in support of risk assessment and modeling

Module 2: Epidemic Intelligence Data and Vizualisation

A vizualisation tool for epidemiological data of various origin (event-based and indicator based) and a media monitoring tool PADI-web.
Learn more about its components and how to get involved

Module 3: Disease risk mapping

This module provides risk maps and other modelled outputs, aiming at highlighting areas suitable for the occurrence of (mainly) specific zoonoses in animals and humans, to support improved disease detection, monitoring and surveillance.
