EUROCHAMP-2020 aims at further integrating the most advanced European atmospheric simulation chambers into a world-class infrastructure for research and innovation. The project is composed by a coordinated set of networking activities, which deliver improved chamber operability across the infrastructure, as well as standard protocols for data generation and analysis. Trans-national access is provided to sixteen different chambers and four calibration centres, becoming the core of the project. Joint research activities enhance the capability of the infrastructure to provide improved services for users. Cooperation with the private sector a fundamental pillar of the project, and it is necessary to exploit the innovation potential of the infrastructure by supporting development of scientific instruments, sensor technologies and de-polluting materials. Overall, EUROCHAMP-2020 has the goal to significantly enhance the capacity for exploring atmospheric processes and ensure that Europe retains its place in atmospheric simulation chamber research.




The Pan-Hellenic Infrastructure for the Study of Atmospheric Composition and Climate Change (PANACEA) is the only integrated Research Infrastructure (RI) for atmospheric composition and climate change, not only for Greece, but for all of Southern Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean, an area that has been identified as extremely sensitive for climate change. The project covers the need for the observation and supervision of atmospheric composition, changes in solar radiation, climate change and related natural hazards in Greece. In addition, it pioneers the provision of services in sectors of the economy affected by air pollution and climate change. PANACEA aims to act as a critical point for the next generation of researchers in environmental sciences, to attract promising young researchers to research and industry and to be a bridge between science, industry and entrepreneurship.




The need to identify and characterize organic pollution require the development of sensors and technologies of high specifications and specialized targeting. The Innovative Integrated Mass Spectrometry Sensor System for Characterization of Atmospheric Pollutants (IMSAP) project aims to the evolution of a prototype analytical device for the characterization of organic air pollution. The innovative and prototype device will be able to respond to current research developments and market needs and will be a unique instrument, with high standards in the mass spectrometry market.



The European Integrated project on Aerosol Cloud Climate and Air Quality Interactions, EUCAARI, brings together the leading European research groups, state-of-the-art infrastructure and key players from third countries to investigate the role of aerosol on climate and air quality.



The MEGAPOLI project brings together leading European research groups, state-of-the-art scientific tools and key players from third countries to investigate the interactions among megacities, air quality and climate. MEGAPOLI will bridge the spatial and temporal scales that connect local emissions, air quality and weather with global atmospheric chemistry and climate.




ATMOPACS (Atmospheric Organic Particulate Matter, Air Quality and Climate Change Studies) is proposing an innovative new approach for the description of OA in both chemical transport and climate models that will be able to overcome the challenges posed by the chemical complexity of OA while capturing its essential features. The proposed framework is based on the two-dimensional representation of the OA in the volatility oxygen content“coordinate system.



The Pan-European Gas-AeroSOls-climate interaction Study (PEGASOS). This European large scale integrating project brings together most of the leading European research groups, with state-of the-art observational and modeling facilities, to quantify the magnitude of regional to global feedbacks between atmospheric chemistry and a changing climate and to reduce the corresponding uncertainty of the major ones. Also PEGASOS aim is to identify mitigation strategies and policies to improve air quality while limiting their impact on climate change.
