Project Description

This project aims to incorporate a database of outdoor and indoor air quality and a package of models to develop an innovative and versatile policy support tool, specifically designed to support decision makers that will establish a relation between population exposure to mixtures of PM compounds and emission sources, allowing to identify measures to improve air quality and quantitatively assess the impacts of those measures not only on air quality but also on the population health amd wellbeing. The tool will be implemented in 5 EU cities: Lisbon, Porto, Athens, Kuopio and Treviso.
