International Consortium develops low cost nanosensors for real-time air quality monitoring
The international Consortium of the NanosenAQM project, which is developing and validating low cost and low energy consumption nanosensors to measure air-quality and provide real-time data in urban and rural areas, will meet on the 10th and 11th October at the University of Coimbra (Palácio dos Melos).
Coordinated by ITEFI-CSIC, Spain, the project has a funding of € 1.5 million under the Interreg Sudoe programme.
The Consortium envolves 11 partners from Portugal, Spain and France, including a research team of the Centre for Informatics and Systems of the University of Coimbra (CISUC), led by Bernardete Ribeiro, professor and researcher at the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the UC.
According to Bernardete Ribeiro, “by developing low-cost gas nanosensors to measure air-quality and provide real-time data, the Nanosen-AQM project will contribute to providing massive, distributed and ubiquitous air quality monitoring”.
At this meeting, the various partners will present the results obtained so far, as well as the methods developed for processing the data collected in real-time, in order to inform and raise awareness of the problem of ambient air quality.
