The project objectives are:demonstrate how Service Tools from atmospheric Research Infrastructures (RIs) can be enhanced to better address the challenges and societal needs concerning air quality (AQ) in European cities and industrial hotspots; respond to the urgent needs to reduce air pollution across EU by providing enhanced AQ observations in support of advanced AQ policy assessment; develop and enhance synergies between AQ Monitoring Networks and atmospheric RIs combining advanced science knowledge and innovative technologies to develop pilot STs.
ACTRIS is a pan-European research infrastructure producing high-quality data and information on short-lived atmospheric constituents and on the processes leading to the variability of these constituents in natural and controlled atmospheres. ACTRIS serves a vast community of users in answering to many societal and environmental challenges, such as air quality, health, sustainability and climate change. ACTRIS is composed of Observational and Exploratory Platforms, Topical Centres, Data Centre, and Head Office that is coordinating the ACTRIS activities.

The ambition of ATMO-ACCESS is to address the needs for developing sustainable solutions based on the principles of open access and to develop recommendations for management and funding for efficient and effective access provision suited to distributed atmospheric RIs.
Copernicus is the Earth observation component of the European Union’s space programme. The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) has been appointed by the European Commission with funding from the EU to operate the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service and the Copernicus Climate Change Service on its behalf. Institute of Methodologies for Environmental Analysis (IMAA) of the National Research Council (CNR) has been contracted by ECMWF to implement the C3S2 311 Lot2 “Comprehensive Upper-Air, Baseline and Reference in situ observations”, which valorises the effort spent in Cop1 within the C3S 311a Lot3 (“Access to observations from baseline and reference networks”) and C3S 311c Lot2 (“Historic In Situ Upper Air Database”) contracts.
The project is a pilot for the implementation of provision in NRT of profiles processed in a centralized, traceable way and with data quality control (Level2 -6months delay).
A support action for national and regional authorities to advance their governance structures and strengthen dedicated support for cities to achieve the climate-neutral Cities Mission. CapaCITIES coordinates actions across climate neutral city initiatives in Europe in order to exploit synergies between them and align efforts towards the goals of the mission including city networks, the UAEU partnerships, the CoR, and others.
Sand and dust storms (SDS) are an important threat to health, environment and economy in many countries. DustClim project makes a major step forward in the way SDS affects society by producing an advanced dust regional model reanalysis for Northern Africa, Middle East and Europe and by developing dust-related services tailored to specific socio-economic sectors.
e-shape is a unique initiative that brings together decades of public investment in EO; empowering services for decision-makers, citizens industry, and researchers. 27 cloud-based pilot applications under 7 thematic areas address societal challenges, foster entrepreneurship and support sustainable development.
With the signing of the UNEP Minamata Convention in 2013 and its ratification in 2017, the world’s governments have accepted that mercury (Hg) is toxic and of global relevance; scientific needs will therefore shift towards best implementation practices of the Convention.
I-Seed aims at developing a new generation of self-deployable and biodegradable soft robots, inspired by the morphology and dispersion abilities of plant seeds, to perform low-cost, environmentally responsible, in-situ detection of key environmental parameters in air and topsoil.
The project aims to bridge the gap between potential and actual irrigation performance in the Mediterranean, by the development of innovative irrigation management tools based on readily available multi-sensor remote sensing data.
INNOMEM aims at developing a sustainable OITB (Open Innovation Test Bed) to foster deployment and scale-up of innovative nano-enabled membranes and their derived products.
The main objective of the project is to demonstrate 3 case studies at TRL 7 that will achieve water preservation along with green energy conversion and material recovery.
MARVEL targeted a paradigm shift from antibodies to peptides as an alternative class of affinity ligands for EV capturing by introducing membrane-sensing peptides (MSP) as novel ligands for the capturing of small EV, unbiased by differential surface protein expression.
MEloDIZER implements high-performance membranes and modules in strategic applications of membrane distillation (MD). MEloDIZER’s overarching goal is to provide the needed step to transform membrane distillation (MD) and especially its core components, namely, membranes and membrane modules, into products for the benefit of industry and society.
PrioritEE PLUS aims to capitalize on the experience of the PrioritEE project and improve, through transnational cooperation, the effectiveness of local policies on sustainable energy use, strengthening the capacities of public authorities and stakeholders in the evaluation, definition and adoption of analytical tools for increasing energy efficiency of public buildings. In particular, a structured training and transferring process is carried out for the use of the Decision Making Support Tool – DST in the territories of the partners’ MED area.
Integrazione di nuovi materiali funzionali adattabili per lo sviluppo di sistemi analitici intelligenti e altamente sensibili per applicazioni ambientali in caso di necessità. SmartMatter ha lo scopo di sviluppare biosensori con proprietà magneto-plasmoniche per il rilevamento di microinquinanti, come i pesticidi.
TRACE aims to improve the skills and capacities of European SMEs towards a more resilient, sustainable and circular tourism economy.
The overall objective of TRUST project is to contribute to reducing the water scarcity in Mediterranean regions where the risk is increased by a combined effect of water resources overuse and climate change.
