Business and science go hand in hand. Airly’s offer for higher education

For several years, Airly has been partnering closely with many universities around the world, including NILU, Emory, IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, Aalborg University. In Poland, we carry out joint projects with the University of Warsaw, the Warsaw School of Economics, the Jagiellonian University, the Białystok University of Technology and the University of Economics in Wrocław.

What are the benefits of partnering with Airly?

The areas focus on:

– scientific cooperation and knowledge exchange:

– studies on the long-term impact on human health in areas affected by smog

quality analysis under extreme conditions, reaching places where no measurements have been carried out so far

– scientific research based on air quality data obtained from Airly sensors and external measuring stations.

– internships and apprenticeships for students interested in air quality, forecasting and AI at Airly

– commercial cooperation as part of the development of a network of air quality sensors on university buildings or dormitories, which proves:

-commitment to social responsibility and sustainable development

-the care that universities take to improve the quality of life of students

Who are we working with? – the most interesting partnerships:

University of Warsaw

CoMobility is an international research project that examines transport attitudes and behaviors, in particular alternative services to private cars. The results of the project are a set of methods for co-creating new transport solutions and tools for assessing their impact on air quality in Warsaw. The CoMobility team consists of scientists from three Warsaw universities (University of Warsaw, Warsaw University of Technology and Warsaw School of Economics), physicists (NILU) and anthropologists (FNI) from Norway, as well as members of the Warsaw non-governmental organization “On the spot” Foundation.

As part of the CoMobility project, from August 15, 2021, Airly provides sensors, installed in public primary schools, which allow the study of the impact of specific communication solutions on air quality.

NILU (Norwegian Air Research Institute)

The cooperation started in July 2020. NILU uses data from Airly sensors for many projects in Poland and Scandinavia. The aim of the project is to build citizens’ awareness of the sources of air pollution and related threats. As part of the entire project, NILU uses data from over 150 Airly devices. The project creates a visualization of air pollution using VR technology and to measure how air pollution affects the daily behavior of residents.

Warsaw School of Economics 

There is a sensor on the campus that measures the concentration of dust and gases in the air. The funds for the project came from the participatory budget adopted by students of the Warsaw School of Economics. The project is called “I know what I breathe.”

Dr Marcin Dąbrowski, Chancellor of the Warsaw School of Economics, explains why this project is an essential step in the concern for the sustainable development of the university and the health of all members of the academic community.

“Measurements of air quality complete the package of pro-ecological activities of the Warsaw School of Economics in the last year. Among which are worth mentioning:

– suspension of several dozen nesting boxes for birds and bats,

– comprehensive care of over 400 trees on the campus, new oak plantings,

– preparation of a flower meadow for our bees or installation of a composter and rainwater tanks. “

H2020 DivAirCity project

In cooperation with Univeritat Politecnica de Valencia, Universitatea Tehnica De Constructii Bucuresti, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Danish Technology Institute and Aarhus University, we are implementing the H2020 DivAircCIty project (https://divaircity.eu/), which leads to the improvement of air quality in cities.

The goals of the project are:

– shaping inclusive solutions to reduce air pollution and climate problems in cities

– focusing on women, young and old people, ethnic minorities, people with different abilities, low-income groups

– creating a set of Smart Cities contracts based on blockchain technology to facilitate the use of new services by citizens

– sharing knowledge to understand and be part of a shared vision of better, innovative, culture-based cities.
