Improving indoor AIR quality and HEALTH


K-HEALTHinAIR, project led by CARTIF,  looks to evaluate the interior air quality in 9 different representatives scenarios at a european level in base of a monitorization campaing of physical, chemical and biological parameters. The study will be carried out in 5 different pilots distributed around Europe: Barcelona, Rotterdam, Baden – Wurtemberg, Polonia/Austria and Normway.

The aim of the project is identifying the elements that present a higher health risk at the different scenarios and to identify their sources for proposing measures to reduce their risks.

On the other side, the project will work on improving the commercial solutions at a user level for monitoring the air quality and that it can be used as alarm systems and as guide for the HVAC systems.

Also, it will seek to bring knowledge and tools to the different stakeholder groups identified in the appropiate form in each case.


  • Make a complete characterization of the interior air quality of 9 relevant selected scenarios.
  • To evaluate the collected information and to identify the determinants of people´s health in each scenario.
  • Look for the main determinants sources of each scenario and propose solutions for improving the environment health.
  • Improve the monitoring solutions at a user level, making them friendly and to develop new implementations of the collected information.
  • To disseminate the projects results to the different objective public and adapt them propperly.


  • Coordination of the project
  • Sensors validation
  • Identification of precursors of certain determinants.
  • Clustering activities with other projects including the development of the cluster website.
  • Organization of a congress and final event.

Expected Results

  • Validation/verification sensor protocols and preparation of related services to the outside.
  • Scientific articles.
  • Equipment validation test to improve air quality. Development proposal.
  • Knowledge to use the information collected by the sensors to improve the interior air quality and identify the potential risks.
  • Interior air quality audits.

SUPERA project is based on increasing and improving the knowledge of the mechanisms of action of RNAi in the framework of plant health, thus boosting agricultural productivity and environmentally friendly forest health. Environmental RNAi refers to the uptake of RNAs from the environment that can induce systemic gene silencing in the organism.

Agricultural side streams-olives, wine, chicory and onions- are rich in bioactive compounds (BAC) and have antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties. Their full potential has yet to be realised, due to a lack of technologies that preserve the complexity and functionality of these BAC.
