14.06.2022 – LIFE REMY Expert meeting – draft agenda

14th June 2022 (Hybrid event: face-to-face and online)

Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (IDÆA) – Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) C/Jordi Girona 18-26  Barcelona, Spain

Rationale: LIFE REMY assesses how Emission uncertainty impact air quality modelling and offers a set of modelling/observed case studies to support the implementation/assessment of guidelines to reduce air quality modelling uncertainties. LIFE REMY invites experts and stakeholders that can offer interesting outcomes from their ongoing activities and suggest new issues that, to a limited extent, could be assessed by REMY.
