University of Žilina has been measuring air pollution from road transport in the functional urban areas of the city of Žilina. The methodology of measurements has been established and technological background has been ensured. At present, the measurements have been performed at 5 monitoring stations and the measured values are being evaluated.
Within the AIR TRITIA project, team led by ACCENDO research institute is developing air quality management strategies both for the entire EGTC TRITIA region and in detail for functional urban areas (FUAs) of cities Ostrava, Opava, Rybnik, Opole and Žilina.
Final conference of the AIR TRITIA project will be held on November 24, 2020 in Ostrava.
The tenth AIR TRITIA project team meeting took place on 19th of February 2020.
On Tuesday, May 7, 2019, the HEALTHY AIR INFO DAY was held at VŠB - Technical University of Ostrava.
Stand of the project AIR TRITIA and Research center with interesting information about air protection on event Christmas at the university.
Another meeting of project team AIR TRITIA took place at the Hotel Liburnia in Cieszyn in Poland.
Results of the project AIR TRITIA, achieved by now, were presented at the Conference URBAN ENVIRONMENT “Green town, healthy town = sustainable city”.
On 16th of September 2018 was within the AIR TRITIA project, organized in Opole the “Healthy Air Info Day”. The slogan of the event was “How can I contribute to the healthier air”. The event was prepared by Central Mining Institute, supported by city Opole.
Healthy Air Info Day took place in Žilina on the 19th September 2018, within the AIR TRITIA project. Event was prepared by the Faculty of Civil Engineering and the Research Centre of the University of Žilina in cooperation with city Žilina. Morning programme was dedicated to students, afternoon to general public.

The interactive show "Smokeman zasahuje" (Smokeman in action), designed for both children and adults, performed not only the suitable solid fuels for domestic boilers, but also a lot of interesting tasks and experiments. The participants were also tested on air pollution issues and geography of the TRITIA region. After the participants had completed the quiz they were given a little prize.

The project team met at the VSB in Ostrava for the 3rd project team meeting to evaluate and plan further tasks within the AIR TRITIA project.
UNIFORM APPROACH TO THE AIR POLLUTION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR FUNCTIONAL URBAN AREAS IN TRITIA REGION / AIR TRITIA
Air quality in excessively polluted areas is still managed at local level. At the same time, air pollution is a specific issue with its cross-boundary overrun so that it cannot be effectively managed only at the national or regional level. AIR TRITIA aims to increase air quality management capacities of public sector bodies through the development of a unified spatial information database, introducing new management and pollution prediction tools and air quality strategies.
The common cooperation approach to air quality management at the level of functional urban areas will be based on detailed mathematical modelling and verification of various types of measurements with the use of supercomputers. The project will also define options for transmitting information within different territories, define measures for the reduction of emissions and elaborate legislative proposals for a more efficient implementation of an integrated strategy for air quality management at the territorial level.
Current state review (studies, projects, legislation). Current state studies (socioeconomics, epidemiology). 8 spatial databases gathering information among 3 nations. Processing of spatial data (GIS). Mathematic models. Traffic measurements, isotopes measurements & moss analysis.
