CITI-SENSE Project - Citizens' Observatory for Air Quality

CITI-SENSE is a European funded project that develops “citizens’ observatories” to empower citizens to contribute to and participate in environmental governance, to enable them to support and influence community and societal priorities and associated decision making. CITI-SENSE develops, tests, demonstrates and validates a community-based environmental monitoring and information system using innovative and novel Earth Observation applications.

Technion Environmental Health Air Pollution Research

Prof. Lidia Morawska in the TCEEH: Trends and challenges in air pollution

TCEEH together with Technion-Australia Theeman Researcher Exchange Program organized a series of lectures by Prof. Lidia Morawska, director of International Laboratory for Air Quality and Health (qut.edu.au/research/ilaqh), faculty of Science & Engineering, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia. This is the 1st lecture out of 3 that was given on 2/2/15 at The Grand Water Research Institute, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Technion, Haifa, Israel.

Prof. Lidia Morawska in the TCEEH: Approaches to evaluation of exposures to nanoparticles

TCEEH together with Technion-Australia Theeman Researcher Exchange Program organized a series of lectures by Prof. Lidia Morawska, director of International Laboratory for Air Quality and Health (qut.edu.au/research/ilaqh), faculty of Science & Engineering,Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia. This is the 2nd lecture out of three that was given on 4/2/15 at The Grand Water Research Institute, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Technion, Haifa, Israel.

TCEEH Air Quality Talk:Prof. Michael Brauer - Air Pollution Urban Design and Healt.

Michael Brauer, a professor in the School of Environmental Health at the University of British Columbia, speaks about the implications of urban planning on air pollution and health effects. The talk was given in the Environment and Air Pollution open event that was held in the Technion, Haifa, on 19.5.14, organized by the Center of Excellence in Exposure Science and Environmental Health -TCEEH and the Technion Student Organization - ASAT.

TCEEH Air Quality Talk:Prof. James Schauer - Technologies and Strategies for Climate Change Mitigations

James Schauer, professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, discusses technologies and strategies for climate mitigation, and their relevance for different sectors. Prof. Schauer gave this talk as part of an environment and air pollution open event that took place in the Technion, Haifa, on 19.5.14. The open event was organized by the Technion Center of Excellence in Exposure Science and Environmental Health - TCEEH and the Technion student organization - ASAT.

TCEEH Air Quality Talk: Prof. Mark Nieuwenhuijsen ideas how to use smartphones for raising citizens awareness to their environment.

Mark Nieuwenhuijsen is a senior investigator in the center for research in environmental epidemiology (CREAL), Barcelona. He leads the international TAPAS study, which examines the health impacts of active transport in six European cities, and of the EC funded PHENOTYPE study, which examines the relations between green space and health. Prof. Nieuwenhuijsen is an expert in the areas of respiratory disease, cancer and reproductive health, exposure measurement and modelling of indoor and outdoor pollutants, such as pesticides, occupational allergens, chlorination by-products in drinking water and heavy metals. His studies utilize geographic information systems (GIS), smartphones and remote sensing technologies. He is a co-investigator in many European research consortiums, such as ICEPURE (examining exposure to solar UV), ESCAPE (studying long term health effects of air pollution), and CITISENSE (distributed wireless sensors for citizen empowerment). Professor Nieuwenhuijsen present idea

TCEEH Air Quality Talk: Prof. Jeremy Sarnat-our current knowledge on air-pollution related health effects

Jeremy Sarnat is an associate professor at the Rollins School of Public Health of Emory University, Atlanta, GA. His research focuses on human exposure science and on the different factors that affect exposure to urban air pollution, as well as on associations between specific pollutants and sources and corresponding health responses. Professor Sarnat has an expertise in data analysis techniques for evaluating associations between single and multi-pollutants and acute health outcomes (respiratory outcomes, cardiovascular outcomes, emergency room visits, mortality, etc.). Prof. Sarnat is the recipient of the 2011 Outstanding Young Scientist Award of the International Society of Exposure Science (ISES) for his contributions to exposure science. In his talk, Prof. Sarnat discusses our current knowledge on air-pollution related health effects, specifically how well can we establish the link between air quality and health status.
