Project needs

Type of partnership:

Research cooperation agreement

Type and role of Partner sought:

The technology follows European (EN13725:2003) and International standards about the odor harassments.

The main goal, at the present stage, is to realize reference cases with the support of local public authorities (mainly local and national authorities appointed to ensure/enforce air quality standards) for the validation of the methodology.

Expressions of interest are welcomed from Universities and Research Institutes in order to organize
and schedule scientific studies concerning the long-term testing of the proposed innovation.
