Together with and for Community
Cork City Council: Cork City Council's Air Quality Monitoring Programme works in partnership with the EPA's National Ambient Air Quality Network. This network is a series of air quality monitoring stations that are located across the country. There are 4 air quality monitoring stations installed across Cork City Council's functional area as part of the National Ambient Air Quality Network.
RADICAL: This event is coordinated by the RADICAL project, which is led by UCC. RADICAL is an EU-funded research project to develop a novel type of low-cost sensor to detect atmospheric radicals, for better air quality monitoring.
Environmental Research Institute: This event is supported by the Environmental Research Institute (ERI). ERI is a flagship UCC institute that integrates over 400 researchers from 20 University schools and departments and 6 research centres to work together to accelerate the transition to a sustainable society.
