  • 2015 London Air Quality Network (LAQN) conference
    02 Jul, 2015
    More Information:


    The 2015 London Air Quality Network (LAQN) conference will take place at King's College on July 2nd.

    The LAQN is a unique collaboration between the public, private and academic sectors and the annual conferences are a chance for air quality researchers and practitioners to discuss the latest findings and developments in the field.

    Last year marked 21 years of the Environmental Research Group at King's and a special two day conference, 'Frontiers in Air Quality Science' gathered leading experts, collaborators and colleagues from around the world to give a global perspective on air quality science and trends.

    This year the focus is back to London and the South East, with internal and external speakers covering air pollution trends and intervention analysis, engagement with businesses and communities and the latest health impacts science that drives everything we do.

    As in previous years there will also be poster sessions and displays.

    Places are free to members of the LAQN and to our funding partners. To register your place please email valentina.lotti@kcl.ac.uk. We look forward to seeing you there.
