WHOW (Water Health Open knoWledge) Action will 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.

In particular, the Action 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. In doing so, it will integrate datasets from Italy and other European countries through data available on the European Data Portal (EDP) and the Copernicus Space Infrastructure, making them available for re-use.

The Action 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 programme where interested stakeholders and users will be engaged from the initial phases of the Action.

Therefore, the Action will support the Public Open Data Digital Service Infrastructure by helping to boost the development of information products and services based on the re-use and combination of environmental data and health data on disease dissemination.
