We are very pleased to let you know that the annual conference of our Centre will take place from 4-6th November in Beijing and will be hosted by the Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences! In the coming weeks we will provide information on the program. This will be the third Annual Meeting of the ACC-AQSM (the first was held in Brisbane and the second in Shanghai), and we have no doubts that like the previous ones, it will be an interesting, productive and stimulating event. We counting on having you with us at the conference!

Earlier this month, Professor Hai Guo from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University visited the Queensland University of Technology to continue discussions on the Centre’s awarded joint Asian Universities Cluster (AUC) Center of Excellence in Civil Engineering project titled, Impacts of Megacities on Regional Atmospheric Environment – A comparative study of emission, transformation and effects of urban pollution from Australia, Singapore, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. There are further meetings planned in May, together with members from Tongji University and National University of Singapore, to start planning the arrangements of the concurrent 2018 field sampling campaign in four cities in four different countries/regions.
The visit also led to discussions on a new potential collaborative Centre project on using unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)’s to monitor particle number (PN). Hai’s group is developing chemical sensors for conducting measurements of CO, SO2, CO2, PM2.5, O3 and PN plus temperature, relative humidity, which will be used for the measurement of vertical profiles of air pollutants in street canyon in Hong Kong.

A joint PhD agreement has been signed between the Fudan University and the Queensland University of Technology! The agreement was finalised following QUT’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Peter Coaldrake, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Scott Sheppard, Professor Ian Mackinnon and Ms Jacqueline Yuan’s visit to Shanghai in December last year.
复旦大学与昆士兰科技大学签署了联培博士生协议！ 去年12月QUT副校长Peter Coaldrake教授，代理副校长Scott Sheppard教授，Ian Mackinnon教授和Jacqueline Yuan女士访问上海之后，该协议确定签署。

Applications for the 2017 Australia-APEC Women in Research Fellowship round is now open for high-achieving post-doctorate and early career female researchers from China to pursue research opportunities in partnership with Australian education and research institutions! This Fellowship is designed to assist with the particular challenges female researchers face in undertaking cross-border research activities such as lack of flexibility and extra financial support for child care. There is no restriction on eligible fields of study – this is entirely open! To find out more about eligibility requirements, please read the Guidelines and FAQ’s for this scheme. Full details can be found on the Australia-APEC Women in Research Fellowship webpage.

An exciting new measurement campaign! The Shanghai Cooking Emissions Campaign was carried out at the Tongji University from December 2016 to January 2017, led by Professor Zoran Ristovski and Dr. Svetlana Stevanovic from the Queensland University of Technology, Associate Professor Lina Wang from the East China University of Science and Technology, Professor Jun Gao from the Tongji University, Professor Lin Wang from Fudan University, and Dr. Li Li and Dr. Hongli Wang from the Shanghai Academy of Environment Sciences. This joint project was funded by a National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) Grant, with Svetlana and Lina as the Chief Investigators. The project focuses on the measurement of the physical and chemical properties of cooking aerosols, as well as their ROS profiles and cell toxicity. Read more
一个激动人心的新测量实验！ 上海烹饪排放实验于2016年12月至2017年1月在同济大学进行，由昆山理工大学Zoran Ristovski教授和Svetlana Stevanovic博士华东理工大学（ECUST）王丽娜副教授，同济大学高军教授，复旦大学王林教授和上海环境科学研究院（ SAES）的李丽博士和王红丽博士领衔。该项目由国家自然科学基金委（NSFC）资助，Svetlana Stevanovic博士和王丽娜副教授为首席研究员。该项目侧重于测量烹饪气溶胶的物理化学性质，以及它们的ROS水平和细胞毒性。 阅读更多
