Parliament showcase of air quality research

Urban air quality research at King’s College London was showcased a Research Councils UK (RCUK) event – The Science of  Health and Wellbeing – hosted by the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) on Tuesday 4 June 2013. 

Experts on different disciplines relevant to health and wellbeing were invited to discuss their latest research with parliamentarians and members of government departments, with the aim of providing high quality evidence to inform policy-making. 

Representing King's, Dr Ian Mudway and Andrew Grieve invited guests to explore their hands-on exhibit on urban air quality.  They presented a series of maps showing varying air quality levels in London and demonstrated how portable pollution monitors and apps are used to provide comprehensive data on urban air quality. 

The urban air quality exhibit was based upon research from the NERC-managed cross councils programme ‘Environmental Exposure and Health Initiative’.
