The Forum for Air quality Modelling (FAIRMODE) is a joint response action of the European Environment Agency (EEA) and the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC). Its aim is to bring together air quality modellers and users in order to promote and support the harmonised use of models by EU member countries, with emphasis on their application to the European Air Quality Directive.
The ETC/ACM Technical Paper 2013/3: "A European compilation of national air quality maps based on modelling", is now available on the ETC/ACM web site at:
We are pleased to inform you that the next FAIRMODE plenary will take place on 10-11-12th of April. The agenda can be found here. Some practical information about traveling to Antwerp and where to stay can be found here.

The draft version of the FAIRMODE Particulate Matter Modelling Report , which is meant to be the basis for a FAIRMODE PM Modelling Guide is open now for comments. The document has been compiled by the European Topic Centre on Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation (ETC/ACM), the topic centre of the EEA working inter alia on air quality issues. The draft report is a product of the FAIRMODE Working Group 1 (Guidance on modelling, user interaction). You can download the document in Word 2007, Word 97-2003 and pdf.
We would very much appreciate to get first comments already during the FAIRMODE WG1 breakout-group meeting on the 11th of April in the afternoon. The deadline for your input is the 2nd of May. Thank you very much in advance!
The next FAIRMODE plenary is now scheduled for 10-12th April, 2013. The meeting will be hosted by Belgian Interregional Environment Agency (IRCEL), the Flemish Environment Agency (VMM) and the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO). The final agenda and some practical information can be consulted here.
The final FAIRMODE recommendations to the review of the EU Air Quality Policy can be consulted here.
The next FAIRMODE plenary is now scheduled for 29 - 30 May, 2012. The venue will be Utrecht, hosted by TNO. The preliminary agenda can be consulted here.
The FAIRMODE guidance document: "Modelling of Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) for air quality assessment and planning relevant to the European Air Quality Directive" is now available as an ETC/ACM Technical Paper.
