InChildHealth at ECSA 2024

Teresa Schäfer, Claudia Magdalena Fabian, Barbara Kieslinger and Elisabeth Unterfrauner from the ZSI team participated to the 5th European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) conference that was held in Vienna. During their workshop “How to include schools in science health studies: practical experiences and lessons learned?” the main points of the discussion were: STE(A)M education is becoming more significant for science education and …

The start of our sampling campaigns

Did you know that we are starting sampling in 4 countries? We are monitoring the air quality in places where primary school children spend their time. This will help us understand what children are exposed to in their daily life. Stay tuned for more news!

Identifying determinants for indoor air quality and their health impact in environments for children: measures to improve indoor air quality and reduce disease burdens

The InChildHealth project will integrate health, environmental, technical and social sciences research to identify determinants for Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and evaluate their impact in environments occupied by school children. Real-life indoor air quality (IAQ) data will be collected across Europe. User-friendly and low-cost monitoring technologies and strategies (technical and behavioural) to improve IAQ and reduce disease burdens will be …
