On June 14th, Life REMY consortium organized the first expert workshop in the framework of the project. The main goals of the meeting were to present the project’s early results and the discussion and finalization of the objectives of the second phase of the activities.

The WS was organized in three sessions:

a) presentation of results of Life REMY’s first phase, chaired by Fulvio Amato

b) contributions from modelling experts on ongoing European projects, chaired by Guido Pirovano

c) round table with experts and stakeholders, chaired by Philippe Thunis

About 70 people attended the meeting, mostly remotely connected.

The presentations of the second session and the round table confirmed that the main topics of the Life REMY project still represent critical issues for air quality modelling and can give rise to awareness of relevant uncertainties, particularly in air quality policy contexts.

Among others, the themes that have aroused the most significant interest and are already present in the project are:

– traffic resuspension

– residential combustion with both traditional fuels and biomass

– organic particulate modelling

Some suggestions on additional issues that could be the subject of REMY’s were highlighted, such as:

– temporal modulation of emissions

– agriculture

The meeting was closed by Giuseppe Maffeis, coordinator of the LIFE-REMY project, that expressed satisfaction for the results of the meeting and thanked, once again, the speakers and participants for their significant contribution.
