GoGreen research project helps Monsenso expanding into new markets. Monsenso is pleased to announce that it is partnering with a pan-European consortium in the Go Green Routes research project supported by the Horizon 2020 programme. The consortium has been granted EUR 10.49 million from the EU to develop innovative solutions that foster mental health and well-being by optimising human-nature interactions for citizens. These innovations will increase the uptake and acceptability of nature-based solutions across the trial cities Burgas, Lahti, Limerick, Tallinn, Umea and Versailles.
Monsenso’s solution will be further developed and used to both encourage green nature-based choices and to monitor citizens’ mental health to help better understand the health impact of nature-based choices for people in cities. Monsenso’s share of the project contribution will be EUR 253.000.
“Participating in a project that combines nature-based solutions, green choices and mental health and well-being is very exciting for Monsenso. A lot of focus and investment is going into green solutions and technologies these years, and this could represent a great potential for us. Moreover, the project will expand our international network and help bring the Monsenso solution into new markets”. says Thomas Lethenborg, CEO of Monsenso.
The project will start in September 2020 and is coordinated by the University of Limerick. The project run for four years and includes 40 partners across 18 countries, among others Mental Health Europe, King’s College London, Technical University Munich, Manchester Metropolitan University and universities in Tallinn, Aachen, Torino, Antwerpen, Versailles and Inland Norway as well as the trial cities.
“We envisage that GOGREEN ROUTES will translate cutting edge research into impactful solutions for cities health, mobility and ecology” says Dr Tadhg MacIntyre, lecturer in psychology at the University of Limerick and project lead coordinator.
This project is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 framework programme under grant agreement No 869764.
