VIDIS will work in a multidisciplinary nexus of research areas required to underpin air quality management, exploiting the possibilities provided by the new monitoring paradigm enabled by the emergence of low- cost sensors for ambient air quality.

Low cost sensor systems were recently added as an additional observing tool to already existing assessment methods such as :

  • compliance/regulatory environmental monitoring
  • environmental models/atmospheric dispersion models
  • remote sensing
  • other observing capabilities
  • data mining
