iScape research in RTÉ lecture

The iScape research project, led by CONNECT investigator Dr Francesco Pilla at UCD, was mentioned during the 2016 Michael Littleton Memorial Lecture broadcast on RTÉ Radio 1 on New Year’s Eve.

The lecture, entitled “Citizens of the world: The power of connectedness in an age of alienation”, was delivered by Professor Louise Richardson, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford.

Francesco’s iScape project which aims to deliver better air quality in several European cities was described as a “perfect example of how modern European research works”.

The lecture can now be listened to at this link with Francesco’s research project described from ca. 14 minutes.

Full details of the iScape project are available here.
