EUROPEAN (net)WORK-GROUPS

Concerning the involvement of European stakeholders all beneficiaries and especially the Spanish coordinator IDAEA-CSIC and UB have a strong interaction with stakeholders at EU level.

IDAEA-CSIC is the Spanish scientific representative in the following European work-groups:

Clean Air for Europe (CAFE) Programme

PM and BC experts groups from the Geneva Convention (UNECE)

Eionet – European Topic Centre on Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation

Also, the associated beneficiary UB has strong interaction with the following groups:

ACEA – European Automobile Manufacturers Association 

icct – International Council on Clean Transportation

T&E – Transport & Environmen

CONCAWE – Conservation of Clean tAir and Water in Europe

UAVR team members participate or integrate several networks, aiming at promoting research on air quality in Europe, through the exchange of information on practices, the realization of inter-community activities and the identification of research priorities, keeping in focus policy needs.

These networks promote the dialogue between the scientific community and multi-stakeholders offering an opportunity to establish a bridge between air quality research carried out in the scope of several research projects and decision makers.

AQMEII – Air Quality Modelling Evaluation International Initiative

COST Action TU0801 – Semantic enrichment of 3D city models for sustainable urban development

COST Action ES0804 – Advancing the integrated monitoring of trace gas exchange between biosphere and atmosphere

COST Action ES0602 – Weather Forecasting and Information Systems (ENCWF)

COST Action ES1006 – Evaluation, improvement and guidance for the use of local-scale emergency prediction and response tools for airborne hazards in built environments

IDAEA-CSIC, UAVR, NCSRD and UNIFI also participate actively in the European Intercomparison Exercise and drafting of RMTP (receptor model technical protocol) for harmonizing source apportionment techniques, organised by JRC-EC in the framework of FAIRMODE network.

FAIRMODE – Forum for Air quality Modelling in Europe
