Summary

The INTASENSE project aims to develop an indoor air quality monitoring tool to support the efficient use of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems in buildings while maintaining a healthy working environment. In so doing, the health, quality of life and productivity of EU citizens will be improved.

Key INTASENSE Strategic Objectives:

  • To develop a smart air quality monitoring system that can intelligently interface with existing ventilation and air treatment systems to maximise their energy efficiency and effectiveness.

  • To combine breakthroughs in micro and nano-scale detection to deliver a low cost advanced air quality sensing system to monitor key airborne pollutants.

  • To improve substantially the health, quality of life and productivity of EU citizens by providing a comprehensive air quality monitoring capability to transform air quality control.

Ceit's role in the project

Development of metal oxide nanostructure-based novel indoor air quality gas sensors for key airborne pollutants.
