Water Health Open knoWledg - WHOW Project

In the framework of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) TELECOM in September 2020 the WHOW project will be launched. The project has aims to develop a framework to foster the creation of a large data ecosystem on water consumption and quality, health parameters, and dissemination of diseases to be reused for advanced analysis and development of innovative services.   WHOW addresses the generation of cross-border and cross-domain services also re-using information made discoverable through the European Data Portal. In particular, the project will develop the first European knowledge graph on water consumption and pollution, with data sources coming from different administrative levels; and will correlate this environmental data to health data on disease dissemination by integrating datasets of Italy and other EU countries, making them available for anyone for successive reuse. While the cross-border use case will focus on water-related datasets, the cross-domain use case will be implemented by the Italian partners correlating health data to environmental data.  WHOW will target use cases in the creation of the knowledge graph, identifying and integrating the relevant set of indicators for Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and will embrace a co-creation program where interested stakeholders and users will be engaged from the initial phases of the project.  The Celeris Advisory Ltd (Irland) is leader of the project and the Italian Institute for Environmental Protection and Research (ISPRA),  the Italian National Research Council – Institute of cognitive sciences and technologies (CNR-ISTC) and the ARIA S.p.A. (Regional company for Innovation and Purchases of the Lombardia Region) are the partners.
