uCARe is a project funded by the European Union (H2020 LC-MG-1-1-2018) with the aim to reduce the impact of transport on air quality. The project has a 36 months duration and started on the 1st of May 2019. The budget is 3 million Euro, spent on 288 person months by 14 partners. The ambition of uCARe is to reduce the overall pollutant emissions of the existing vehicle fleet to improve air quality with impact on, among others, the environment and people’s health. To achieve this, uCARe will: provide vehicle users with simple, insightful and effective tools to decrease their individual emissions; support stakeholders with an interest in local air quality in selecting feasible intervention strategies that lead to the desired user behaviour.
