Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)
The growing situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the UK is presenting unprecedented challenges for individuals, companies and organisations alike. As a responsible organisation, the IAQM’s primary concern is for the safety of its attendees, members, speakers, exhibitors and staff. We are therefore following the advice of the UK Government to ‘avoid social contact with others and stop non-essential travel to fight Coronavirus’ and as a result, all face-to-face events and workshops for the next few weeks will be postponed.
Where possible we will deliver events and workshops via online platforms. Please refer to the individual event page for further details around each of our events.
We will honour all bookings made for events to date and transfer these to the new event date, details of which will be circulated to you in due course.
We thank you for your support during this time.

Early Careers Group Meetup
17 Jul, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 5:15 pm
This series of mid-afternoon events offer a platform for early-career professionals to gain valuable professional development and share experiences with peers in a relaxed and supportive audience, providing an excellent CPD opportunity which you can later use as evidence of development when upgrading from Associate to Member.
The next meetup will be held at Atkins Offices in London, Victoria on Wednesday 17th July and will include a workshop around air quality monitoring.
Monitoring of actual, observed air pollution levels, complements the modelling forecasts that IAQM members use routinely in their assessments of air quality impacts of anthropogenic activity. Measurements of air quality data can generate large amounts of data; turning this into a robust and reliable evidence base required the proper design of the monitoring strategy and the appropriate use of statistical tools to draw out the key features.
Attendees will have a chance to find out how air monitoring developed over the years and what are the opportunities and challenges of using emerging technology to monitor air quality. Join the meeting and don’t miss the opportunity to listen to and network with other professionals.
