SUSTAINABLE URBAN DEVELOPMENT EMERGING FROM THE MERGER OF CUTTING-EDGE CLIMATE, SOCIAL AND COMPUTER SCIENCES

Organization profile

In the fight against climate change and coping with the pressures arising from urbanisation, cities worldwide make solutions modifying pollutant emissions and thermal comfort. The consortium answers to the possible challenges on air quality by helping cities to plan climate healthy future urban areas, considering future traffic flows and population structures. CouSCOUS combines the fields of artificial intelligence, atmospheric and social sciences in a way that has not been done is this extent before and therefore advances the state of scientific research in all disciplines involved and provides decision makers and city planners globally with novel relevant information and tools for creating future sustainable cities. Consortia will utilize various detailed data sources, from grid-level population data to climate and traffic data and analyses them. The consortia will work tightly both together as well as in co-operation with relevant stakeholders.
