Developing the research base to design and operate healthy schools now and in the environment of the future.
Our work is broken down into four in-depth content areas relating to schools and air quality: Understanding the problem; understanding the solutions; prioritising the solutions and dissemination and outreach. Each group will meet regularly to discuss the research landscape and identify priority areas for further work. If you would like to get involved please contact us.
Every six months we will bring our community together with a full Network meeting. We will also hold workshops on topics of interest with expert speakers. Members of TAPAS are welcome to join any of our focus group activities which will run regularly, or to work with us directly on bespoke research.
To change the conversation on air pollution we believe it is essential to engage directly with children, schools and parents. Our team includes education and citizen science specialists who will help us to effectively build schools outreach into our work programme.
We have the capability to award small grants to research projects that support our ambition to develop the research base to design and operate healthy schools in the environment of the future. For more details on how this will be run please watch this space...
TAPAS is working with a range of partners across academia, policy, industry and civil society.
