A COST funded network of European spin-offs, SMEs, agencies, research centres and universities, including UA through IDAD, is working on developing cheaper and energy efficient sensors for air quality control in Europe’s future smart cities.
Air pollutants in the EU are still estimated to reduce life expectancy by eight months and are directly linked to climate change. EuNetAir network is now trying to develop affordable, low-power sensors to assess indoor and outdoor air quality and eventually reduce greenhouse gases and other toxic pollutants. The COST Action will also look into environmental sustainability and ways of better managing green buildings at low carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
