What is the name of your initiative?H2020 SOCIO-BEE

How would you describe the main mission of your initiative?Measure/monitor air quality, Measure personal exposure, Raise awareness/education, Advocate for air quality policies

Please provide a short description of your initiative (What is being done? Who is participating? What are your main goals?) This text will appear on the main page.The H2020 SOCIO-BEE project aims to encourage citizens to take an active role in the fight against climate change through citizen science using disruptive technologies such as drones and wearables articulated by a framework called AcadeMe. More specifically, Socio-Bee aims to involve different segments of citizens (young people under 16 years of age, older adults over 65 years, and people who commute by car or through public transport in large cities or suburbs) in different scientific endeavors.

Who is your main audience?Citizens, Non- Governmental Organisations, Cities, Other government administrations

Are you using a platform for data visualisation?Yes, we use the platform provided by the equipment manufacturer

Add the public URL (if any)https://bettaircities.com/software/

Is your platform open source?No

Are there any other interesting links related to the data platform?A new data visualization platform is under development and will be released as open-source.

From 0 (the lowest) to 5 (the highest), how easily accessible and user-friendly is your platform?3

Are you providing open data?Yes

How is the data made accessible?API

If any, what qualitative or quantitative indicators (e.g., AQI, alerts…) are you calculating?AQI, Personal exposure to pollutants in paths or tracks (outdoors)

How frequently is the data refreshed in the data platform?Every minute

How long does it take before the newest data is available on your platform?It depends on the amount of users that provide AQ data.

Do you give access to historical data?Yes

If possible, please share a link to your data privacy policy:We agree with the regulations of EU (GDPR) and the local policies that apply to data capture and curation in the three different pilots (Spain, Italy, Greece)

What type of data visualisation do you provide?Maps

Would you like to share with us any additional information? (Max 300 words)Include the final users (in our case citizens from different age ranges and digital literacy) in the design of the technology from the very beginning. In essence, do not wait to test the technology with them once it is developed, but include them in a co-design process.
Inclusive technology is core for the project, so all the ICT assets produced in SOCIO-BEE should agree with a set of inclusion criteria created by experts in the project.
Co-creation in SOCIO-BEE is only understood when the citizens and policy-makers collaborate to design digital tools but also to they should maintain them in the long run. Thus, co-creation does not only include people brainstorming about new ideas, but they should create services that can be exploitable and usable for others.

AIR-HERITAGE

AIR-HERITAGE

Location: Portici, Italy

Description: AIR-HERITAGE aims to design and implement effective, participative policies to improve the City of Portici air quality. The project developed and used an extensive air quality monitoring network, consisting of fixed regulatory monitoring stations, mobile monitoring stations and portable air quality monitors for citizens, to assess current levels of air pollution in the city. Monitoring data and tools have been fused and form an integral part of the Decision Support tool developed to inform policy makers and citizens.
