We are beginning a new 4 year Horizon Europe project called BlueAdapt, together with consortium partners throughout Europe. The project looks at the health risks from coastal pathogens as our climate heats up, and runs from October 2022 to September 2026.
The team includes biologists, climate scientists, economists, epidemiologists and public health experts - amongst other things we'll be working on a Cornwall case study to help generate action and identify potential barriers to adaptation.
This builds directly on the Local Climate Adaptation Tool - we'll be figuring out how to build in new features to help people understand and adapt to future pathogen risks from climate change.
BlueAdapt is funded under the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 101057764. UK participants in Horizon Europe Project BlueAdapt are supported by UKRI grant number 10039058 (Then Try This). The full list of partners includes the University of Exeter (UK), Univerzita Karlova (CZ), Asociacion BC3 Basque Centre for Climate Change - Klima Aldaketa Ikergai (ES), Uniwersytet Warszawski (PL), National University of Ireland Galway (IE), Stichting Deltares (NL), Fondazione Centro Euro-Mediterraneosui Cambiamenti Climatici (IT), EuroHealthNet ASBL (BE), Bangor University (UK), Istituto Superiore di Sanita (IT), Universidad del Pais Vasco/Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea (ES), and us at Then Try This (UK).
