Meeting Information:

Join us for a Science to Achieve Results Research Center Kick-Off Meeting introducing the recipients of the 2015 ACE Centers and their research. Registration is free and open to the public.

The three grants were funded to research the effects of global climate change, technology and societal choices on air quality and health. This research will help inform policymakers at the local, state and national levels. The centers are researching innovative approaches to enable effective implementation of air pollution control strategies to achieve the greatest public health benefits by reducing exposure to harmful air pollution. The 2015 ACE Centers at Harvard University, Yale University and Carnegie Mellon University will give presentations on their proposed research and will be joined by various guest speakers from universities and EPA.

Agenda and additional details are available on the meeting website.

ACE Research Program:

The ACE Research Program provides useful science and tools to investigate regional differences in air pollution and the effects of global climate change, technology and societal choice on local air quality and health. The research is intended for decision makers at the federal, regional, state and community levels. These projects are funded through EPA’s Office of Research and Development, NCER, in cooperation with EPA’s ACE Research Program.

For questions or more information about the kickoff meeting, please contact Sherri Hunt (Hunt.Sherri@epa.gov) or Taylor Katz (Katz.Taylor@epa.gov).
