APAESO (Autonomous Flying Platforms for Atmospheric and Earth Surface Observations)
BACCHUS (FP7) is a European FP7 collaborative project under the lead of ETH Zurich, Switzerland. In the years 2013 to 2017, 21 research institutions from the European Union, Switzerland, Norway, and Israel work closely together to better understand key processes in aerosol-cloud interactions.
BACCHUS is one of three individual research projects building the research cluster “Aerosols and Climate”that the EU initiated, recognising the importance of improving climate predications to develop sustainable policies for Europe.
ACTRIS-2 (Aerosols, Clouds, and Trace gases Research InfraStructure) is a European Project supported by the European Commission Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Framework Programme (H2020-INFRAIA-2014-2015) from 1 May 2015 to 30 April 2019.https://www.actris.eu/Projects/ACTRIS-2IAinH2020(2015-2019).aspx
AQ-SERVE(Air-Quality Services for a cleaner air in Cyprus)
AQ-SERVE will combine innovative technical developments with new scientific knowledge on the characterization and prediction of air quality in order to provide the first-ever evaluation of the health impact and risk assessment of air pollution in Cyprus. Different scenarios (abatement measures) will be tested in a coupled Air Quality/Health & Risk model with the objective to define efficient mitigation measures which can be translated to the public authorities (National Air Quality Action Plan).
Major Partners: CUT, EUC, DLI, DoE, DoM, Aditess, CySHA, CEA (France), CITEPA.
ACCEPT (Assessment of Climate Change Effects on Pollution Transport in Cyprus)
ACCEPT aims to establish a comprehensive atmospheric measurement program located in Cyprus,representative of the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East (EMME) atmosphere. The program will underpin fundamental studies of photochemical processes and multiphase interactions between atmospheric desert dust and human-made pollution, better account for the long-range transboundary pollution (composition, origin), and provide a reference “baseline” still missing to evaluate the rapid changes (trends) in air pollution and climate change that currently occurs in the EMME region.
Major Partners: DoE,CUT, EUC, DLI, DoM, CITEPA, NILU.
EMME-CARE (Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East – Climate and Atmosphere Research Centre)
Major Partners: UHEL, MPIC CEA
