Innovating for Clean Air
The initiative, Innovating for Clean Air a two-year India-UK joint initiative in Bengaluru aimed at providing a unique air quality measurement system.
Monitoring Air Quality
- The initiative provides for a unique air quality measurement system integrating satellite and sensor data and supports India’s transition to Electric Vehicles (EVs).
- The initiative will identify innovations having potential to improve air quality and contribute to a more detailed localised map of the air quality of Bengaluru through the unique combination of satellite and sensor data, including both on-the-ground and mobile data.
- It will identify relevant challenges around EV-charging infrastructure, grid management and integrating renewable energy to ensure a sufficient, reliable and clean source of power. It will also facilitate opportunities for Indian and UK innovators to collaborate in developing long-lasting relationships to address these challenges.
The initiative is led by Innovate UK which is part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and is funded by the Newton Fund with matched resources from various key partners in Karnataka and India, like Indian Institute of Science, Enzen, Project Lithium, Confederation of Indian Industries, C40 Cities and Clean Air Platform.
