Members' Area


The Aerosol SocietyThe Aerosol Society aims to support the study and science of airborne particles.

Our members are drawn from both industry and academia covering a wide range of disciplines from environmental health and climatology to pharmaceutical devices and nanotechnology.

By joining the Aerosol Society you will have the opportunity to meet thought-leaders in this exciting area of science and have access to a network of people with interests in every aspect of aerosol science.

The Annual General Meeting of the Aerosol Society was held on 4th April 2012. To view the Minutes of this meeting please click here

The Aerosol Society - Small Research Grant Scheme 2014

The Aerosol Society is pleased to announce the inaugural round of its small research grant scheme. In recent years the economic climate it has prevented us providing full funding for PhD studentships. However, the Committee of The Aerosol Society have decided run a research award in 2014 to support aerosol research within the UK and Republic of Ireland.

Focus Meeting Sponsorship Opportunities

As you know we do hold several events/conferences throughout the year, including the Annual Aerosol Science Conference, as well as sponsoring other one-day meetings by invitation.

One of the aims of the Society is to support the study and science of airborne particles, and to promote this by means of meetings and publications. With this in mind The Aerosol Society would like to take this opportunity to introduce its new Application for Focus Meetings.

The Aerosol Society intends that Focus Meetings (FMs) should concentrate on specific topics that have a recognisable aerosol science flavour and emphasis. FMs are distinct from other meetings that the Society agrees to co-sponsor through cooperation with other academic and professional organisations. There is also opportunity for the Society to host and organise the meeting on your behalf.

 The Joaquin-Project

The Joaquin-Project is an EU-funded ‘Joint Air Quality Initiative’ aims to support health-oriented air quality policies in Northwest Europe. To achieve this, the project will provide policy makers with the necessary evidence on the current local and/or regional situation (e.g. measurements of emerging health relevant parameters), provide them with best-practice measures that can be taken, and motivate them to adapt and strengthen their current air quality policies.
Currently, the project partnership consists of 16 partner organizations. Only recently also the Greater London Authority and ATMO Nord Pas-de-Calais joined the partnership.

In March 2012 we already organized a much-attended start conference in Antwerp. Now the project is more or less halfway, we are planning to organize a comparable conference, including the presentation of some initial project results. For the event, that will take place 21-22 May in Leicester we are currently looking for interested air quality stakeholders that possibly would like to attend.
