CAPACITIE: Cutting-Edge Approaches for Pollution Assessment in Cities

CAPACITIE is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network, funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme. The project consists of 16 partner organisations, in addition to the University of York, which is the coordinating and host organisation for the duration of the project. The associate and partner organisations span the industrial, regulatory, consultancy, research and governmental sectors. CAPACITIE includes 12 PhD projects. Each of the projects is related to addressing a variety of issues linked to pollution monitoring in cities. The PhD projects span several disciplines related to the monitoring of pollutants and the development of new technologies for pollution monitoring. The Environment Department is the host department for the project, with the Chemistry, Electronics, Sociology, Computer Science and Physics departments also hosting CAPACITIE PhD students. The CAPACITIE Project is a YESI (York Environmental Sustainability Institute) featured project. YESI aims to develop novel interdisciplinary projects between different departments across the University of York and a wide variety of diverse external organisations and partners.
