    The primary aim of the WorldTrans project is to unpack the mystery of Integrated Climate Assessment modelling and make the process of using such models more democratic and inclusive. WorldTrans proposes here to widen the team using EU's “Hop on” facility to include FCiências.ID, through its Research Center Instituto Dom Luiz at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, Portugal. Participation in WorldTrans is an opportunity for FC.ID scientists to engage with a society-facing transdisciplinary research agenda for the onboarding of natural sciences in social planning and policymaking, which is increasingly prioritized in Horizon calls for proposals. It will create a new line of research at FC.ID on Integrated Environmental Assessment and modeling, developing new methods to explore the societal relevance of environmental issues in educational settings, and creating opportunity for a new line of courses at the University of Lisbon. In addition, the Hop-on proposal will contribute to meeting the original WorldTrans objectives. FC.ID researchers Camara, Trigo, Soares and Russo will provide expert knowledge in modelling and analysing the impacts of single or compound climate interactions, such as the drought - fires - health nexus, in several sectoral areas, namely in the energy, finance, economy, aagriculture, and energy sectors. The strength of the feedbacks between the several sectors and the climatic constrainers will also be addressed. FC.ID researchers provide a wide range of complementary domain insights to System Tellus and will strengthen these publications by adding expertise across all IPCC WGs, but especially in WG3 (Köberle) which is underrepresented in the original WorldTrans consortium. FC.ID will bring five Early Career Researchers (ECRs) to the project: one Postdoc, two PhD students and two MSc Students. As the ECRs in WorldTrans already do, the FC.ID ECRs will work within and across Work Packages to ensure a truly interdisciplinary project.

    The Effects on Air quality of Semi-VOLatile Engine Emissions (EASVOLEE) project brings together leading European research groups, with state-of the-art observational and modeling facilities to: i) Quantify the contributions of secondary aerosol formation from transport engines to air quality problems in Europe. ii) Develop and identify health-related metrics, mitigation strategies, and policies to improve air quality, limiting the concentrations of aerosol (organic, inorganic, nanoparticles). The project combines state-of-the art measurement of the complete suite of emissions of transport engines under real driving conditions, investigations of the formation of secondary particulate matter (PM) during their atmospheric processing, and studies of the toxicity of both the fresh and aged PM and of the mechanisms that affect health. These results will be used to improve chemical transport models that in turn will allow us to quantify the effects of engine emissions on air quality and health - both now and for a series of future scenarios. EASVOLEE will improve our understanding of organic emissions from vehicle exhaust including low-volatility (LVOCs), semi-volatile (SVOCs), intermediate volatility (IVOCs) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It will elucidate the corresponding secondary aerosol formation (both organic and inorganic) and characterize the health effects of these primary and secondary particles. The contribution of engine exhaust emissions to PM2.5 and size-resolved particle number concentrations in Europe will be quantified during all seasons. The above scientific evidence will be used to investigate the effectiveness of policies to reduce secondary organic and inorganic PM levels in urban areas – with a focus on components impacting health. Finally, EASVOLEE will develop new approaches to improve the quantification of transport impacts on air quality and health effects supporting future emissions and climate legislation.

    PMCOST addresses the key challenge of particulate matter (PM) air pollution in Poland which is one of the major threats to human health across the country and Europe in general. To date air pollution modelling in Poland has not received the investment needed to fully grasp these challenges. PMCOST brings together the leading Polish researchers on air pollution together with world leading experts from UK and Norway to address this challenge. This twinning of researchers, matches complementary areas of expertise and will enable Poland to be more effective in supporting Polish policy makers and other stakeholder in developing plans for better air quality in Poland. At the same time, it will provide the technical underpinning for Poland to become an international leader in assessment of transboundary air pollution, especially in relation to the UNECE Geneva Convention on Long-range transboundary air pollution, and in support of the European Air Quality Directive. The project will develop a capability in Poland for state of the art atmospheric chemistry transport modelling (ACTM). This will permit a detailed national assessment of the complex chemical composition of PM, the main contributing emissions sources and the most effective strategies to protect human health through targeted emissions abatement. To achieve this goal PMCOST will focus on three core Twinning Activities: Training of Polish staff through two-way exchange with the expert partners; Improving the output of high quality peer reviewed publications; Developing the interface between scientists and stakeholders and policy makers through thematic workshops. The key aspects of the Training Programme are represented by three of the five work packages focused on preparation of high quality emissions data for use in ACTMs, operational air pollution modelling of PM and assessing the human health benefits of different emission abatement options.
