Collective awareness platform for outdoor air pollution

hackAIR aims to develop an open technology platform for citizen observatories on air quality. Following a co-creation process with users and the development of the hackAIR platform and its components, the hackAIR platform will be pilot tested in Norway and Germany starting in September 2017 in order to validate the service platform and contribute towards individual and collective awareness about air quality in Europe, encouraging changes in behaviour towards air quality improvements.

The hackAIR open platform will enable communities of citizens to easily engage their members in generating and publishing information relevant to outdoor air pollution, leveraging the power of citizen science, online social networks, mobile and open hardware technologies, and engagement strategies.

This project has received funding from the EU programme on “Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation” and funded through the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No. 688363
