CITEAIR II Final Conference, 24 June Rome

The CITEAIR II final conference was held on 24 June in Rome.

Cities and regions all across the world are facing exposure to high levels of air pollution and the emerging impacts of climate change. Designing, implementing and monitoring mitigation measures, and informing the public about air quality issues are tremendous challenges for policy makers and authorities.

The CITEAIR II project has developed tools to support the monitoring and management of air quality in cities, and offers solutions to inform citizens on air quality. The project is now drawing to an end, and we would like to invite you to the CITEAIR II final conference to share our knowledge, experience and tools with you to help improve European air quality.
