The project could enable students to study more efficiently or journalists to cross check sources more quickly. Several museums in Germany, the Netherlands, the UK and the United States have already showed interest in the new technology. Read more

Do you want to track how much ozone, black carbon and other pollutants you are exposed to when out cycling or walking? This is possible with an app – AirProbe – combined with a small sensor box. Partners from Belgium, Germany, Italy and the UK have developed this system to increase people’s awareness of their environment. More than 300 people in Antwerp, Kassel, Turin and London participated in the first tests.
