Building on the positive response from the first Summer school (that took place in September 2018, details here) the University of Hasselt, as part of the iSCAPE project, is organising a second Summer school on “Air Quality Sensing and Approaches for Mitigation using Smart Solutions and Citizen Engagement” that will take place on the 16 and 17 September, 2019.

Objectives and Expected Outcomes:
The summer school aims to broaden awareness of air pollution and ways to control it. The summer school will provide participants with both theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience in relation to behavioral change initiatives and sensing technologies for air quality management and control. Through the interactive workshops and game environment during the 2-day summer school, participants will learn about the living lab approach, sensing technologies and how to engage citizens and city stakeholders to solve various problems related to the environment.

Participants will have an opportunity to use low-cost sensors, developed within the iSCAPE project and make sense of the collected data through visualization platforms. A team of international experts and practitioners will be there to guide participants throughout these 2 days.

This Summer School is organized as part of the iSCAPE project and it will showcase the most recent research and development activities.

Who should attend:

  • Air quality and urban planning professionals;
  • Municipality staff members;
  • PhD students;
  • Researchers involved in environmental and air quality management studies
  • All stakeholders with a keen interest in learning tools/methods for resolving air quality problems in the neighbourhood and cities.
