International workshop for neighborhood air quality measurements and social/societal innovation, including sensors and AiREAS networked citizen’s initiatives.
AiREAS has been doing an experiment on integrating traffic management and measurement of air quality. From a technological point of view the integration is not that complicated but doing traffic management and human interaction makes it complex and subject to a diversity of criteria.In the end it was given a NO GO.

Right from the beginning AiREAS was involved to get citizen’s structurally involved in the development of their own cities for their own quality of life. Through powerful and critical interaction the manifesto is now ready for endorsement. We are happy with the endresult. Hopefully you are too:
We already did.
Airport Eindhoven closed for 2 week in order to re-tarmac the landing strip. This is an ideal opportunity for AiREAS to measure the difference of environmental impact when the airport is operational and when not. Those measurements started today in the field of ultrafinedust (Technological partner Oxility).
The measurements are done to define and support a more definite infrastructure that will monitor air quality in the entire region, similar to the finemaze, near realtime network we have in the city of Eindhoven. Due to the diversity of polluting agents in the broader scope of the region (intensive catle keeping, agricultural issues, airport, traffic, household pollution, etc) we also need to see how different measurement techiques and sensors work together in providing data for full regional air quality and exposure interpretation. The fact that the airport is closed should give us some insight without the influence of civil and military air traffic. We measure UFP, NO2, Ozone, noise, humidity, temperature and relate to wind direction and climate.

With this news item VINCI energies describes perfectly our synergy in health based multidisciplinary cocreation.
The amount of innovation it triggers is announcing a new Kondratiev economic wave based on psychosocial evolution and applied technology for development of human core values.
In October 2016 we will set up a networking symposium in Eindhoven together with our partners to discuss both this mature form of regional governance as well as the innovative spinoffs that become visible through the cocreation.
