Role in the UFIREG project:

The Helmholtz Zentrum München (HMGU) has many years of experience in assessing air quality at a technologically advanced level including the measurement of ultrafine particles, but also in conducting and analyzing epidemiological studies on air quality and air temperature. Together with the University of Augsburg – Environmental Science Center, they will collect meteorological and environmental data including particle number concentrations at one urban background station in Augsburg, Germany, as basis for the epidemiological study (WP4). The particle number concentrations will be collected by use of the new developed UFP 330 as well as an already running and well established TDMPS system. Further tasks will be a comprehensive literature review and the assessment of the health effects of ultrafine particles on morbidity and mortality (WP5). Finally, HMGU will be responsible for the dissemination of the results to target groups: development of the recommendations and strategy of UFP measurements as well as of the dissemination material.
