Welcome to a kick-off meeting to identify and unite the competences at KTH/SU/IVL that can contribute to air quality solutions.
Air quality is a major challenge for cities around the world. The challenge is growing with the general trend of urbanization and air pollution has reached critical levels in mega-cities. Aiming at a sustainable society with both fluid mobility and clean air, further understanding of the mechanisms of pollutant generation, as well as of transport/dispersion and interaction with humans is needed. Solutions should encompass innovation for emission mitigation, pollutant removal and smart planning. A multi-disciplinary effort is needed, with a combination of different competences, facilities and researcher interaction.

When: September 28th, 2017, 13:00-15:00
Where: KTH, Brinellv. 8, room ”bakfickan” floor 4
