DEVELOPMENT OF NOVEL ASSESSMENTS FOR INDOOR AIR QUALITY MONITORING AND IMPACT ON CHILDREN'S HEALTH
The overall goal of the LEARN Project is the development and deployment of novel sensors to detect the presence of harmful air pollutants to measure the air quality in schools and its impact on the cognition of children.
This will be reached with the measurement and characterization of indoor and outdoor air pollutants by evaluating the presence of biomarkers of exposure and their effect in children´s cognition. Advanced human-based in vitro models of lungs and skin coupled to a revolutionary multisensing device will be used to investigate the mechanisms of toxicity in real-time.
Novel remediation strategies will be explored to improve air quality and promote children´s quality of life and life expectancy by a group of eleven leading research teams, unrivalled in their respective fields (environmental epidemiologists, toxicologists, air quality specialists, systems biology, engineers and citizen/social scientists).
The scientific achievements expected to result from LEARN will unlock a large technology potential in IAQ for decades to come leading to disruptive societal and economic impacts steaming from a radical improvement in the quality of life of children in Europe.
LEARN Project is part of the European indoor air quality and health cluster.
