University of Žilina has been measuring the amount of air pollution from the road traffic in Žilina. The measurement methodology has been established and technological background has been provided. Measurements and subsequent assessment of measured values are currently being performed.
ACCENDO is currently finalizing the socio-economic study focused on the situation and development of economic activities and the epidemiological study of the TRITIA region focused on the health status of the population in terms of diseases affected by the quality of air.

Stand of AIR TRITIA project at the Hlinka square in Žilina during the event Energy and Ecology Day in Slovakia. Students and general public have been informed about the ecology in a playful way - how to sort waste properly, how to reduce spending on energy, how to heat properly.

The interactive show "Smokeman zasahuje" (Smokeman in action), designed for both children and adults, performed not only the suitable solid fuels for domestic boilers, but also a lot of interesting tasks and experiments. The participants were also tested on air pollution issues and geography of the TRITIA region. After the participants had completed the quiz they were given a little prize.

The AIR TRITIA project participated in the Earth Day in Opava. We would like to thank everyone for arranging such a great event. Sunny weather attracted a huge entry of nice people who could see and learn how to be helpful in order to improve the air quality. Everybody seemed to have a great time.
Another meeting of all the AIR TRITIA project partners took place at the headquarters of EGTC TRITIA in Poland. The partners presented the results of air pollution measurements and modeling, exchanged their ideas and experiences and planned the work for the next period

The project team met at the VSB in Ostrava for the 3rd project team meeting to evaluate and plan further tasks within the AIR TRITIA project.
UNIFORM APPROACH TO THE AIR POLLUTION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR FUNCTIONAL URBAN AREAS IN TRITIA REGION / AIR TRITIA
Air quality in excessively polluted areas is still managed at local level. At the same time, air pollution is a specific issue with its cross-boundary overrun so that it cannot be effectively managed only at the national or regional level. AIR TRITIA aims to increase air quality management capacities of public sector bodies through the development of a unified spatial information database, introducing new management and pollution prediction tools and air quality strategies.
The common cooperation approach to air quality management at the level of functional urban areas will be based on detailed mathematical modelling and verification of various types of measurements with the use of supercomputers. The project will also define options for transmitting information within different territories, define measures for the reduction of emissions and elaborate legislative proposals for a more efficient implementation of an integrated strategy for air quality management at the territorial level.
Current satte review (studies, projects, legislation). Current state studies (socioeconomics, epidemiology). 8 spatial databases gathering information among 3 nations. Processing of spatial data (GIS). Mathematic models. Traffic measurements, isotopes measurements & moss analysis.
