For the last 3 years our project colleagues from Laboratoire LIMOS in Clermont-Ferrand, France, were researching and developing the RAPTOR device to measure 03 and N02. We are happy to announce the foundation of a spin-of company named uSu-tech. The company is supported by the association “BUSI incubator”, which helps researchers, scientists, engineers to convert[…]
Our project is in its finishing phase, we prouldly present you our (potential) offsprings. So far we can introduce 4 offspring partners, that want to continue measuring campaigns or research: Town commune Weiz (Austria) The town commune of Weiz will prolonge the campaign of messuring Ozone and NO2, the topic of air quality in general[…]
Around 50 experts on Citizen Science-based air quality research participated in the Hackair Roundtable on October 24 in Frankfurt am Main. Cost-effective air quality sensors are increasingly being used and complement the official high-end measurement stations. The cost-effective air quality sensors not only help to build an increasingly dense sensor network, but also to enhance[…]
On the 1st of March we met with some hobbyists from Happylab Wien to present our project CAPTOR and to discuss the technology of our measuring instruments. The interest in the project and our Raptors and Captors was great. There was a lively discussion on the project, the measuring devices and possible suggestions for improvement.[…]
Citizen Science meets do it yourself Now it is possible to build an ozone measuring instrument yourself. The finished measuring devices can be hung by some hobbyists themselves, provided that the necessary conditions are met. The number of measuring devices to be built is limited. The combination of DIY and scientific curiosity is perfect to[…]
Captor reaches out its antennae. We take on your ideas and coach you as Captor offspring partner ! Check if you fit the requirements and get started! The Captor projects measures air pollution with self-built measuring devices in testbed regions in the 3 project countries in Austria, Italy and Spain. Workshops and events take place[…]
The population of Osona has to breathe pollution that it does not generate. The emissions come from the metropolitan area of Barcelona. Citizens measure the concentrations of this contaminant with CAPTOR, a European citizen science project implemented in Spain, Italy and Austria.
The conference “Air quality and sustainable mobility” took place from 15-16th of Sept. 2017 in Valladolid, with the participation of various experts and policy-makers of the cities of Barcelona, Madrid, Pontevedra and Valladolid, and the Junta de Castilla y León. Now you can access the presentations and videos of Click here (Spanish!): https://www.ecologistasenaccion.org/article34723.html Conference speakers
The Austrian newspaper “Die Presse” recently released an article about how to attract children and teenagers to science. CAPTOR was mentioned as a good example of providing hands-on experiences in dedicated school workshops. Pupils should get the opportunity to explore for themselves.
