Alba leads EuroHealthNet’s contribution in a number of Horizon Europe & Horizon 2020 projects, including BEST-COST (on improving methodologies for the socio-economic cost assessment of environmental stressors such as air pollution), PSLifestyle (on co-creating an online tool to enable everyone to take personalised steps towards more sustainable lifestyles), and BlueAdapt (on adapting to climate-change induced changes in our waters in ways that reduce health impacts). Alba also coordinates IMMUNION (“Improving IMMunisation cooperation in the European UNION”), a 3rd Health Programme project which aims to increase vaccine uptake in the EU.
