Analysing Comprehensive Euregional Data (ACED)

The promotion of public health in the Euregio Rhine-Meuse North (ERMN) is an important task. Systematic, cross-border collection, analysis and subsequent public communication of health data is crucial. These steps help to make informed decisions and implement targeted policies at both regional and Euregional level.

Data analysis not only makes it possible to analyse current health trends, but also to draw comparisons that extend beyond national borders. This promotes transparency in the healthcare sector and raises public and decision-maker awareness of relevant health issues.

As part of the YES 2023 project, standardised cross-border data on the health of 13-17-year-olds in the ERMN was collected for the first time. From September to November 2023, a total of 18,840 young people from 100 schools took part in the survey.

Project framework

  • Target group: ERMN Citizens, political decision-makers, professionals
  • Duration: 01.05.2024 – 30.04.2025
  • Funding: The ACED project is made possible by the Interreg programme Deutschland-Nederland and its programme partners and is co-funded by the European Union (EU). The subsidy amount is €24,797.50.


The aim of this project is to analyse the data from YES 2023 in order to identify differences and similarities in the health and well-being of young people in the Netherlands and Germany and to learn from each other. This in-depth analysis creates a deeper understanding of the health situation of young people in the Euregio Rhine-Meuse North (ERMN). Building on this, the results of the analysis will be systematically communicated to support the development and implementation of effective health strategies and initiatives throughout the region.


The project focuses on two activities:

1) The first activity involves analysing the YES 2023 data coordinated by the GGD Zuid Limburg (NL).

2) The second activity involves the visualisation and communication of the results. For this purpose, the results of the analysis will be prepared in such a way that they can be published on the Euregional Health Atlas. The EHA is an already established cross-border platform in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine (EMR) for informing the public and decision-makers on health-related topics. This will be extended to the ERMN as part of the project. In order to make the results of the project accessible and understandable to the general public, a factsheet will be produced in German and Dutch and a press release will be published.
