Project Details

Description (abstract)

Cities and industrial areas are air pollution hotspots. Assessing the sources and health effects of air pollution is a first step towards reducing it. The EU-funded RI-URBANS project will demonstrate how advanced service tools from atmospheric research infrastructures (RI) can be adapted to tackle air quality challenges and societal needs in urban and industrial areas. It will provide enhanced air quality observations for advanced air quality policy assessment by developing synergies between air quality Monitoring Networks (AQMNs) and RIs in the atmospheric domain. This will increase the capacity of AQMNs to evaluate, predict and support urban air pollution restriction policies. Combining science and technology, RI-URBANS will implement five pilot service tools in nine European cities.
