Representatives of all the LIFE projects approved in the 2016 call have been gathered togheter in Brussels for the kick-off meeting of these new projects. The LIFE GySTRA, coordinated by CARTIF, was presented at the Air and Health session.
This project has two goals mainly; on the one hand, the implementation of a new sustainable mobility policy based on empirical information related to traffic emissions with the aims of controlling and quantifying real driving traffic emissions and creating a global emission management system for two types of users; on the other hand, the development of a new tool based on the remote sensing technology, the RSD+. It will measure real driving emissions at fixed locations according to EU standards, in a non-intrusive manner, with high accuracy and on a large scale the most worrisome emissions for the EU population.
During these two days, coordinators and partners of the new LIFE projects had the opportunity to discuss how these projects can contribute to the development of new environmental policies in the EU, as well as the sustainability and replicability techniques that different projects will carry out to ensure that the solutions provided last over time and reach the maximum number of organizations and people.
