IBBAC: Impact of Biogenic Emissions on Beijing Air Quality and Climate

>> Valorization

IBBAC is inscribed in the continuation of past successful joint work between BIRA and IAP (AMFIC project) and aspires to future collaborative efforts and interactions with the Chinese partner. One of the major assets of this proposal is the partners' longstanding expertise in both measurement and modelling activities, their know-how and flexibility which allows the collaboration to take place in multiple ways. Main points of the valorization strategy will be achieved by

  1. capitalizing scientifically and operationally state-of-art numerical models, steps will be taken to define policy support tools for use by the Chinese authorities, accounting for social applications and impacts of the project output in matters of air quality and climate change
  2. exploiting the access to relevant atmospheric measurements at Beijing conducted by the Chinese partner is expected to provide insights in the air quality assessments for Beijing agglomeration and stimulation for future research directions
communicating scientific results by means of scientific and non-scientific publications in open-access journals, presentations in international workshops and congresses, transfer of scientific results to the public domain
