About the Conference
The D-NOSES project has been pioneering the use of Citizen Science as a way to engage Quadruple Helix stakeholders in co-creating balanced approaches to odour issues. As a result, D-NOSES created tools and methods to measure odour impact transparently and in real-time. The project now invites citizens, scientists and stakeholders to join the project results conference to find out how their work has and will continue to impact odour management from a technical, social and policy perspective.
The Conference is organised within the framework of the D-NOSES project, which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No. 789315.
Three live webinars will be held between 14 and 20 October:
- 14/10: The D-NOSES project at a glance
- 18/10: The D-NOSES methodology and results to tackle odour pollution using citizen science
- 20/10: Introducing odour pollution in the policy agendas
Find the detailed programme for each of the three webinars here.
About the D-Noses project
D-NOSES – “The Distributed Network for Odour Sensing, Empowerment and Sustainability” is an EU-funded H2020 SwafS project that empowers citizens to become a driving force for change through Responsible Research and Innovation, Citizen Science and co-creation tools to map and measure the problem, and co-design solutions with key Quadruple Helix stakeholders. The 3 year-a-long project is supported by key experts in RRI, citizen science and co-creation, International Associations, odour and sustainability experts, including universities and SMEs, local administration, and public sector bodies. D-NOSES will reverse the way in which odour pollution is commonly tackled (i.e. a non-transparent, private process involving either the odour emitting industry or the local city council, with no citizen involvement and poor access to data and information) by applying a holistic approach to researching, building, and suggesting an appropriate regulatory framework, which can act as a basis of the future odour pollution control efforts.
D-NOSES empowers citizens to become a driving force for change through RRI, Citizen Science and co-creation tools to map and measure the problem, and co-design solutions with key quadruple helix stakeholders. D-NOSES has kickstarted a much-needed collaborative journey to tackle the problem of odours at a global scale by developing coordinated local case studies in 10 European and non-European countries.
