CLAiR-City goes beyond state-of-the-art solutions by:

  • integrating the latest insights from the social sciences and changing current methods of emissions analysis and predictive modelling, giving the project the potential to reframe and fine tune policy and action at city, national and EU levels;
  • using real-time data for both game and app environments;
  • using citizen-centered modelling blended with the traditional modelling approaches that have been used to date for the assessment of air quality, thus providing decision makers with a coherent platform for the assessment of scenarios;
  • including behaviour and social practices (employment, education, healthcare, shopping and leisure pursuits) in source apportionment rather than looking only at what sort of machinery is responsible for emissions;
  • creating tailor-made city approaches that take into account climate, wealth, culture, demography, dominant sectors and other parameters that can influence the effectiveness of measures aimed at improving urban air quality;
  • using high-resolution geographical modelling that acknowledges hotspots of activity and poor air quality by adding a high level of detail with respect to citizens (age, education level, household type, income etc.) and geography;
  • carefully analysing existing policy approaches, citizens’ views on desired future policies, as well as perspectives and limitations for future actions, and including not only other environmental policies, such as climate change, air pollution and noise reduction policies, but also wider economic and social well-being policies.
