Agenda announced for SAQN Launch, 14-15 January 2020

We are pleased to announce the agenda for the SAQN Launch event.

The purpose of the meeting is to identify areas of need and opportunity for research, industry and policy to work together, building collaborations across the different communities. There will be interactive sessions, focussed on discussing ideas and identifying areas for focus of both network activities and wider collaborations. Presentations will explore air quality challenges and future opportunities rather than discussing past research.

Details of the agenda are available on the events page. Speakers will be announced before Christmas.

There are still some places available at the event for network members. The deadline for applications is Monday 6 January 2020. To become a network member, please complete the pre-launch survey.

Event: Oxford Air Quality Meeting, 10 Jan 2020

News from SAQN member Felix Leach regarding an upcoming event that may be of interest to the network:

“I want to invite you to the inaugural Oxford Air Quality Meeting, to be held in Oxford on 10 Jan 2020. The aim of the meeting is to bring together the air quality community with the combustion and emissions, policy, and health communities. The meeting is free to attend, thanks to generous sponsorship, and includes speakers from Cambustion, AIR Alliance, DEFRA, Public Health England, Transport for London (presenting the impact of the London ULEZ), and Oxford City Council. I hope to foster as much engagement between the communities represented, and so hope that SAQN members will be eager to support. The full speaker list is available on the website (www.oaqm.org).

There will be an opportunity to present posters, so I would invite those of you who would like to do so to get in touch.”
