Workstream AIR QUALITY

The health impact of pollution and fine particles is uncontested, though the finer mechanics of the process still have to be unravelled by the medical and scientific community. Also, the focus is mostly upon external air and overall pollution, whilst the quality of indoor air is often overlooked.

People spend most of their time in offices, schools and houses. Therefore technology institutes and companies are working actively on new technologies to keep the indoor air clean. The consequences of those efforts with regard to the respiratory system need to be better scientifically documented. The eu.reca network aims to facilitate just that.

Out of a strong personal commitment, eu.reca co-founder Jade Verrept, is  coordinating this workstream. If you want to get involved, get in touch!
