AIRTHINGS Project - Presentation during air quality round table in Frankfurt

Oct 25, 2018   Frankfurt, Germany

Deputy Mayor on Environment of Sofia Municipality Ioana Hristova presented in detail the AIRTHINGS project during a round table dedicated to air quality measuring systems, held under the HackAir Project.

In the framework of the event, different possibilities of combining official data measuring systems with alternative data-collecting sources – including urban grids of sensors, were discussed. In her presentation, Mrs Hristova outlined the current situation in Sofia: an official air quality data, provided by The Executive Environmental Agency is used by the municipal experts and is provided to stakeholders in real-time via the official municipal channels. In addition to that, Mrs Hristova presented in detail the forthcoming urban grid of sensors and the Open Data platform to be built up under the AIRTHINGS project, as an important part of the municipal plans regarding active collaboration with different sources of air quality data.

Different important participants took part at the event, including representatives from the European commission, the European Environmental Agency and the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the EC.
