The ClimPol project focuses on air quality and the connections to climate change and mobility, working in the science-policy-society system. Regionally, the project activities
are focused within Europe, specifically on urban areas, often locally in the area of Berlin and Potsdam. In this context, the primary aim of the project is to improve understanding
of air pollution at the urban level, and how this is connected to policy initiatives and local urban infrastructure choices. To support this aim, stationary and mobile measurements
are conducted using reference instrumentation, as well as small sensors. The projects are often developed or conducted in collaboration with city governments.

Calibration of small sensors and reference instrumentation
Implementation of air quality measurement instrumentation for measurement campaigns
Coordination and planning of logistics for instrument deployment
QaQc of instrumentation during implementation
