An online seminar to improve air quality measurements in Africa
Poor air quality is a concern in African cities, but governments have been too slow to react, one of the reasons being the scarcity of data on different pollutants. Instruments based on low-cost sensors and Internet of Things (IoT) are being considered as solution to evaluate the concentration of different pollutants but very few research has been done till now in Africa on this topic.
Therefore, this seminar which is organized in the framework of the IoT4AQ project aims to bring together air pollution specialists who will discuss various aspects of air pollution:
- outdoor/indoor air pollution,
- air quality index,
- health effects,
- testing and deployment of IoT-based air quality monitors.
It will be held 7 and 8 November online. At the end of the seminar, participants who wish to design IoT-based monitors will be invited for hands-on-training sessions.
The participation to this seminar is totally free of charge! Only registration is required.
