Following the Brokerage Event “Going green in Seventeen” jointly organised by AER and ERRIN, we are happy to share with AER member region a project proposal on air quality which have been presented during one of the break-out session. This project is looking for partners to join the consortia!
Green Solution for Outdoor Air Pollution
Politecnico of Milano, a scientific-technological university which trains engineers, architects and industrial designers, presented the project idea “Green Solution for Outdoor Air Pollution”, which will be submitted within Horizon 2020,in relation to the call SCC-02-2016-2017 Topic: “Demonstrating innovative nature-based solutions in cities”. It proposes to use green roofs as a solution for improving air quality and life in cities. The research aims at developing a tool capable to quantify the amount and type of reduced pollutants, obtaining the potential health benefits that green roofs can provide to the environment and population health.
