CLIMOS leverages the power of cutting-edge data and AI technologies to revolutionize the fight against sand fly-borne diseases, particularly those caused by Leishmania parasites and Phleboviruses.
By capturing sand flies using traps, extensive datasets can be used to analyse climate, environment, and diseases patterns. Such analysis is crucial for understanding how climate change influences the geographical distribution of sand flies, and the potential risk for the diseases they transmit. In its analysis, CLIMOS employs artificial intelligence as one of the tools to predict, prevent, and mitigate the impact of sand fly-borne diseases.
Our innovative approach involves creating predictive models for the spread of sand flies and risk of diseases they carry to be used in an Early Warning System (EWS). Through these data-centric approaches, CLIMOS facilitates a proactive response, targeted interventions, and preventive strategies with the aim of empowering communities and health authorities.

About the CLIMOS project
CLIMOS, Climate Monitoring and Decision Support Framework for Sand Fly-borne Diseases Detection and Mitigation with COst-benefit and Climate-policy MeasureS, aims to assist mitigation of climate – and climate change-induced emergence, transmission and spread of vector-borne and zoonotic pathogens based on Eco-health and One Health approaches.
This will be achieved by quantifying climate and environmental-related drivers of sand fly vector populations and the sand fly-borne diseases (SFBDs) across Europe.
CLIMOS Stakeholder Network
Join forces with us to confront the challenges presented by climate change, particularly its impact on the geographical distribution and prevalence of sand fly-borne diseases. The Network actively promotes collaboration between research/academia, public authorities, companies, civil society/citizens, and the natural environment.
We are dedicated to generating science-based predictions, actions, and policy recommendations to mitigate the emergence and spread of Sand Fly-Borne Diseases induced by climate change.
By becoming part of our stakeholder network, you gain access to cutting-edge tools and insights for early detection, management, and prevention of sand fly-borne diseases. In addition, you can participate in the development of CLIMOS’s EWS and contribute to co-creating policies and recommendations for the decision makers and governments, playing a crucial role in addressing sand fly-borne diseases and shaping public health initiatives.
CLIMOS is part of the European Climate-Health Cluster which aims to address climate change-induced health risks and help preparedness and adaptation. The Climate-Health Cluster is a Horizon Europe cooperation between 6 European research and innovation projects. We collaborate to increase the societal and policy impact of EU-funded research linked to climate, health and policy.
