UN Sustainable Development Goals(SDG)
This innovation contributes to the following SDG(s)
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 1
End poverty in all its forms everywhere
The UN explains: "Extreme poverty rates have fallen by more than half since 1990. While this is a remarkable achievement, one-in-five people in developing regions still live on less than $1.90 a day. Millions more make little more than this daily amount and are at risk of slipping back into extreme poverty."
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 10
Reduce inequality within and among countries

The UN explains: "The international community has made significant strides towards lifting people out of poverty. The most vulnerable nations – the least developed countries, the landlocked developing countries and the small island developing states – continue to make inroads into poverty reduction. However, inequality still persists and large disparities remain in access to health and education services and other assets."

This innovation was developed under the Horizon 2020 project HiDALGO with an end date of 30/11/2021
Description of Project HiDALGO
Developing evidence and understanding concerning Global Challenges and their underlying parameters is rapidly becoming a vital challenge for modern societies. Various examples, such as health care, the transition of green technologies or the evolution of the global climate up to hazards and stress tests for the financial sector demonstrate the complexity of the involved systems and underpin their interdisciplinary as well as their globality. This becomes even more obvious if coupled systems are considered: problem statements and their corresponding parameters are dependent on each other, which results in interconnected simulations with a tremendous overall complexity. Although the process for bringing together the different communities has already started within the Centre of Excellence for Global Systems Science (CoeGSS), the importance of assisted decision making by addressing global, multi-dimensional problems is more important than ever. Global decisions with their dependencies cannot be based on incomplete problem assessments or gut feelings anymore, since impacts cannot be foreseen without an accurate problem representation and its systemic evolution. Therefore, HiDALGO bridges that shortcoming by enabling highly accurate simulations, data analytics and data visualisation but also by providing knowledge on how to integrate the various workflows and the corresponding data.
