FAIRMODE Plenary meeting

FAIRMODE Plenary meeting

FAIRMODE was created in 2007 to facilitate the exchange of experiences and results in the context of the application of the air quality directives and to promote the use of models for air quality assessment and management in a harmonized way between Member States of the European Union. The forum includes experts appointed by the Member States (National Contact Point) and the access of the scientific community and air quality administrators is open.

The Atmospheric Pollution Laboratory (INAT) of ENEA has represented the Ministry of the Environment (now the Ministry of the Environment and Energy Security) in FAIRMODE since the beginning of its activities, with Mihaela Mircea as National Contact Point. ENEA actively contributes to the activity of the forum, with Antonio Piersanti co-chair of CT3 – Quality indicators for model forecast, and with participation in international comparison exercises between models and methodologies (source apportionmentspatial representativeness of monitoring stationsEuropean Composite Map, microscale models) applied to air quality management and to the creation of guidelines, manuals and tools (source apportionmentmodel validationDELTA tool assessment). Furthermore, ENEA contributed to the Fairmode document of recommendations for the revisione of the Air Quality Directiveproposed by the European Commission on 26 October and is currently under negotiation between the Member States and the European Parliament.

Programs, presentations and minutes of Fairmode meetings since 2008 are available here. sono disponibili programmi, presentazioni e minute delle riunioni di Fairmode dal 2008. In the recent technical meeting in Oslo (18-20/10/2022), ENEA presented the validation of the MINNI forecasting model on Europe in CT3the SOM methodology of selection of the representative days in CT4the sensitivity simulations of MINNI to the emission variations on the Po Valley in progress in CT9.
