About the ClimApp project

ClimApp is an ongoing EU project funded by European Research Area for Climate Services (ERA4CS) and three participating countries: Sweden, Denmark and The Netherlands. The aim of this project is to develop an advanced mobile phone App that integrates weather forecast data into human heat balance models. The personalized App takes into account individual factors and predicts body responses, provides health risk warning, and gives advice to individuals in both the public and private sectors. ClimApp supports decision-making when coping with heat and cold stress, especially when facing extreme weather events such as heat waves and cold spells.
