Air4EU is an FP6 European project with the major aim of providing recommendations on methodologies for the spatial assessment of air quality on local, urban and regional scales. The emphasis is on methodologies that combine monitoring and modelling and on spatial assessment for regulatory purposes, i.e., the EU daughter directives. The recommendations coming from Air4EU are intended as guidance for authorities involved in air quality assessment at the city, national and European levels as well as institutes involved in air quality research and application. This paper provides some highlights from the recommendations and case studies that emerged from the project.
