MEDMI website launches

Posted on 29th March 2016

The MEDMI project has launched a new website to showcase its work.

The Medical and Environmental Data Mash-up Infrastructure project, or MEDMI for short, has brought together leading organisations in climate, weather, environment and health to explore how big data might be used in health research.

Funded by the UK Medical Research Council and the Natural Environment Research Council, the project has created complex analysis tools using data from the Met Office and Public Health England.

It is hoped this proof-of-concept platform will serve as a common resource for public health researchers to assess links between meteorological, environmental and epidemiological factors in the UK.

On 1st July 2023, the MEDMI web site & server were decommissioned.

Data for public health analyses will be accessible via a facility operated by the UK Health Security Agency: the Environmental Public Health Surveillance System (EPHSS).

For access to such data, please email
