On June 7th, Life REMY consortium organised the Second Expert Meeting.

The meeting was organized in three sessions:

A) Results of Life REMY in the middle of the project, chaired by Joanna Strużewska

B) Life REMY related activities and projects, chaired by Federica Ippolito

C)  Round table on Life REMY project topics, chaired by Philippe Thunis

The results of our project were presented during a one-day hybrid event. More than 80 people attended the meeting, mostly remotely connected.

The meeting discussed the effect of emission uncertainty on air quality and policies and the link with the Proposal for a Directive of the EU Parliament and Council on ambient air quality and cleaner air for Europe.

The meeting was also enriched by contributions from air quality expert presentations and the open debate with stakeholders and local experts from Italy, Spain and Poland.

The enclosed presentations show the efforts that Life REMY project performs to improve air quality modelling.
