MOOD H2020

Unifying and improving health monitoring in Europe and around the world

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 availble sources of data. 

The EU-funded MOOD project is taking advantage of data mining and analysis of big data to enhance the utility of event-based surveillance (EBS), utilising reports, stories, rumours and other information transmitted through formal or informal channels including blogs, hotlines and social media. Ultimately, MOOD is supporting the work of European and global public and veterinary health agencies by providing existing monitoring platforms with methodological and practical support in response to their needs.

The MOOD project will reinforce collaborations with other French and European research institutes for even greater performance of the tool for epidemic intelligence purposes, in a One Health approach.

This is what's specific and also very challenging of the MOOD project: you really need these interactions between working packages to achieve what we have to achieve.

4 steps to improve epidemic preparedness and response


on Epidemic Intelligence systems in European countries with different socioeconomic statuses, geography, climate, and surveillance methods: Spain, Finland, France, Italy and Serbia;


Epidemic Intelligence stakeholders characterized their systems and then jointly assessed their needs in terms of Epidemic Intelligence tools and services;


Based on identified user-needs, tools & services will be developed in close collaboration with end-users,  together with training programmes to ensure their uptake;


Outputs will be made available to the European Centre for Disease Control and to public health agencies involved, and disseminated in Europe and beyond, particularly in the global South;
