On January 1st, 2021, Dr. Dan Westervelt, co-PI of the Clean Air Toolbox for Cities Initiative and Africa lead, launched the Clean Air Monitoring Solutions Network (CAMS-Net). Thanks to a 5 year, $2M grant from the NSF AccelNet Program, CAMS-Net will create a “network of networks” that will facilitate the exchange of knowledge, ideas, and data in order to improve the usage and application of low-cost sensor data.
With partners in the US, Europe, India, China, and Sub-Saharan Africa, CAMS-Net will also provide capacity building, scholar exchanges, mentoring, workshops, and public outreach that will create opportunities to explore the uses of low-cost sensor data for policy recommendations and health studies. With this new project, the Clean Air Toolbox Initiative continues to work towards using low-cost sensor data to close the data gap and encourage effective mitigation policies.
