Tell us which networks are relevant to air quality

In our launch meeting, our members spoke about the number of other air quality networks operating in the UK, the risk of too many meetings and overlap of subjects. We would like to create a map of air quality networks so that we can better understand the landscape, offer more signposting to our members to relevant events and opportunities and provide a more joined up approach to air quality challenges.

If you are a member of, or are aware of other relevant networks, please complete this short form with brief details.

Travel Grant Applications Now Open

Applications are now open to SAQN members for our Travel Grants scheme. Travel grants are offered for activity that will enable network members to build collaborations, make new connections, take advantage of STFC capabilities and assist them in proposal development. Members may apply for funding for travel, accommodation, subsistence and training/registration fees where needed.

Travel grants are available to network members, so don’t forget to join the network before you complete your application. We’ll be awarding them on a rolling basis throughout the life of the network, so there is no deadline for applications.

If you feel that you could benefit from one of our Travel Grants, please complete the online application form.

Further details about SAQN funding can be found on our Funding page.

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.”
