iSCAPE - Improving the Smart Control of Air Pollution in Europe
Project duration: 09/2016 to 08/2019
iSCAPE is a Horizon 2020 project within the EU research and innovation programme and started in September 2016. The project aims to integrate and advance the control of air quality and carbon emissions in European cities in the context of climate change through the development of sustainable and passive air pollution remediation strategies, policy interventions and behavioural change initiatives. For example, iSCAPE will include the development and assessment of a framework aimed at changing the mobility behaviour of people and improving urban green to directly reduce the exposure to air pollution. These strategies will be assessed and applied to Living Labs in Bologna, Bottrop, Dublin, Guildford, Hasselt und Vantaa and will be designed to achieve measures of reductions not only in air pollution exposure, but also in climate change impacts, air pollution emissions and associated costs. Furthermore, the project will deploy a network of air quality and meteorological sensors (both stationary and mobile) and evaluate the benefits expected and experienced from the interventions on a neighbourhood and city-wide scale. iSCAPE will support sustainable urban development by sharing results with policy-makers and planners, providing scientific evidence and ready-to-use solutions to improve city life for citizens.

Location & approach
The TU Dortmund campus is located near the Dortmund West interchange, where the A45 Sauerland line crosses the B1/A40 Ruhr expressway. The Dortmund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. Coming from the A45, you can turn onto Stockumer Straße via Universitätsstraße. This in turn is connected to Baroper Straße, along which Campus South extends. If you take the exit of the A-40, the route via Emil-Figge Straße, Marie-Curie Allee to Baroper Straße makes sense. If you turn from Baroper Straße into August-Schmidt Straße, you have the possibility to reach the parking lot directly behind the GB III.
The South Campus is connected via Stockumerstraße by bus lines 440 and 449, which run every 10 minutes. Campus South can be reached on foot from the Am Gardenkamp stop, and the Eichlinghofen H-Bahn station is also located near the Eichlinghofen stop. The bus lines connect to the U42 light rail line at the Barop Parkhaus stop, which provides connections to the Dortmund-Hombruch district and Dortmund downtown.
From Dortmund-Eichlinghofen, the South Campus is connected to the H-Bahn network via the Eichlinghofen H-Bahn station. Line 1 runs here every 10 minutes, and the South Campus is served by the Campus Süd stop.
A connection to Campus North is also provided via the H-Bahn. Line 2 shuttles between Campus North and Campus South every 5 minutes.
The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.
The facilities of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
