The INAR National Network received Flagship funding from the Academy of Finland!

The Atmosphere and Climate Competence Center (ACCC) is a consortium between INAR at the University of Helsinki (coordinates the Flagship), Finnish Meteorological Institute, University of Eastern Finland and Tampere University.

ACCC will help Finland, EU and ultimately the whole world in reaching the Paris climate target and in mitigation and adaptation to climate change by providing sustainable, cost-effective and science-based solutions. We will quantify and activate the potential for climate change mitigation through carbon sequestration in forests and soils, and quantify the air quality-climate interactions and impacts to mitigate air pollution and sustain healthy atmosphere and to quantify the impact of reducing pollutant emissions on climate. The active interaction between the interdisciplinary ACCC and the policy makers and private sector facilitates effective climate policies, mitigation and adaptation plans from national to international scales. The company collaboration boosts new practical solutions e.g. new atmospheric measurement instruments, climate – air quality analysis services and improved verification services for auditing sector.
