Forum for Air quality Modelling in Europe

The Forum for Air quality Modelling (FAIRMODE) is a joint response action of the European Environment Agency (EEA) and the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC). Its aim is to bring together air quality modellers and users in order to promote and support the harmonised use of models by EU member countries, with emphasis on their application to the European Air Quality Directive.

FAIRMODE focuses on:

  • Coordinating and gathering information from modellers and users within Europe.
  • Developing guidance and recommendations on air quality modelling for modelers, users and the European Commission.
  • Providing harmonised tools and methodologies for model benchmarking and assessment.
  • Providing recommendations for scientific research in air quality modelling.
