AU partner in a new H2020 project on Climate change impacts in Europe

Exposure to heat and air pollution in Europe – cardiopulmonary impacts and benefits of mitigation and adaptation (EXHAUSTION).

21.02.2019 | Klaus Condé Christensen

Air pollution is currently the largest environmental killer in Europe, causing 500,000 premature deaths annually!

Heatwaves can make air pollution more lethal and cause more heart and lung diseases.

Coordinated by Center for International Climate Research (CICERO), Aarhus University and 12 other European institutions will help increase European resilience towards climate change.

Aarhus University, Department of Environmental Science (AU-ENVS) will lead the work on the projections of climate and air pollution in Europe.  

AU-ENVS will have an important role in projecting mortality and morbidity in Europe due to changing climate and its interactions with air pollution, population dynamics and adaptation/mitigation strategies towards European resilience to climate change.

AU-ENVS will receive 4.9 million DKK.  

Ulas Im is the PI for AU-ENVS.
