ACCENT-Plus (Atmospheric Composition Change: the European Network – Policy Support and Science) is a coordination Action financed by the European Commission within FP7. It builds on the successful efforts of the Network of Excellence ACCENT which over the past six years has brought together the atmospheric science community engaged in global change and air pollution studies. The integrating activities within the ACCENT Network have produced a stronger, more cohesive community and have facilitated the engagement of a new generation of scientists who have started their career in the collaborative environment promoted by ACCENT.
The biennial Urbino Symposia, initiated within ACCENT, is continuing within ACCENT-Plus.
As a regular gathering of the whole European science community involved in atmospheric composition and climate change research, it provides a unique opportunity and focus for research. The goals of the meetings are to promote the integration and collaboration of the relevant scientific communities and to establish a constructive interaction with policy-makers. This edition of the Symposium has been organised in collaboration with the EU funded projects in the field of Atmospheric Composition Change (PEGASUS, ECLAIRE, ECLIPSE, ACTRIS, InGOS, APPRAISAL and SEFIRA) and the link with the most important international activities/projects (e.g., iCACGP, IGAC, iLEAPS, SOLAS, GAW, etc.) will ensure exchange with the international (extra-European) scientific community.
The Symposium will consist of plenary oral presentations, poster sessions and special policy related sessions
