Sensors and Drones in Atmospheric Sciences: Training Schools by ATMO-ACCESS

November 11-15, 2024

The Cyprus Institute campus in Nicosia (Cyprus) and Empa campus near Zurich (Switzerland)

The ATMO-ACCESS project supports innovative training and education activities related to atmospheric research infrastructures. It is crucial for the future success of European atmospheric facilities to ensure that new generations of researchers acquire knowledge and skills to take advantage of all the essential tools for their research. These two hybrid Training Schools will run in parallel and focus on the operation and scientific exploitation of sensor systems used in urban and remote areas for ground-based applications (Autumn School at EMPA, Switzerland) and on drones (Autumn School at the Cyprus Institute, Cyprus).

This intensive course is suitable for both M.Sc. and Ph.D. students in atmospheric and Earth system sciences who are working with sensor data from atmospheric variables, related to climate change and air pollution.

The application deadline is July 26th, 2024. The list of accepted applicants will be published on the ATMO-ACCESS website  latest by mid September 2024.

Training opportunity for public authorities

ATMO-ACCESS – an EU H2020 initiative encompassing IAGOSACTRIS, and ICOS – and RI-URBANS – an EU H2020 project aimed at enhancing monitoring capabilities for urban air pollution evaluation, prediction and abatement of urban air pollution- are inviting expressions of interest. They seek to train public authorities in implementing protocols for measuring novel air quality parameters in accordance with the revised EU Ambient Air Quality Directive.

The call targets public authorities involved in air quality assessments, reporting on air pollution levels, or addressing the health and climate impacts of air pollutants. This call offers a unique opportunity to gain insights and engage with air quality experts from the European research community. Attendance of the webinar is free of charge.

The training will be organised as 2 online sessions to be held in October 2024. Please register your interest at this online form by 19 July

Your application will be screened and selected by ATMO-ACCESS Strategic Access Board.
