It inclues the Spring School on Health INformation organized by UNIDEMI

Starting Date: nov 2020

Number of Partners: 16

Total Budget: 3M€

PHIRI allows for better coordinated European efforts across national and European stakeholders to generate the best COVID-19 population health knowledge. In doing so, PHIRI is laying the foundation to build a Research Infrastructure on Population Health to be used to overcome future crisis and ensure the sustainability of the project.

The intent is to support research across Europe through the identification, access, assessment and reuse of population health and non-health data to underpin public health policy decisions. This is achieved through a close collaboration with 41 partners across 30 countries over a period of 36 months (November 2020 – November 2023). The project is divided in 9 ambitious work packages with three transversal topics. PHIRI builds on the achievements of the BRIDGE Health and the Joint Action on Health Information (InfAct) projects.
