The CAPACITIE Project is exploring novel approaches for pollution monitoring of city environments. This project is developing new sensors for measuring key air and water pollutants in cities as well as new monitoring approaches including passive samplers, mobile ‘phones, wireless sensor networks and robots.
This project will understand the needs of users of monitoring data, develop ICT technologies for data collection and analysis and explore how to use the information for decision making.
There has been increasing concern about exposure to pollutants that are not monitored which may be causing harm. This project will understand the impact of these ‘emerging pollutants’ (EPs), and prioritise their monitoring .
CAPACITIE is FP7 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Initial Training Network.
The Principal Investigator is Professor Alistair Boxall, and the project was awarded €3.5m.
