RADICAL is a Horizon 2020 FET-Open project to develop a brand-new way of detecting atmospheric radicals in real-time. This will be a small, low-cost electronic sensor that will ‘sniff’ out short-lived radicals.
This could be a step-change in how scientists monitor and model the role of radicals in air quality and climate change.
RADICAL is led by UCC and includes 5 other partners across Ireland, Germany, Greece, Bulgaria, and the UK.
The RADICAL project has received funding from the European Union (EU)'s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 899282.
