The Distributed Network for Odour Sensing, Empowerment and Sustainability (D-NOSES) is a project funded by Horizon 2020. This project is supported by key experts and stakeholders in Responsible Research and Innovation, ranging from citizens and international associations to universities, local administration, and public bodies. The aim of this project is to reverse the way in which odour pollution is tackled by using a holistic approach to researching, building, and suggesting an appropriate regulatory framework.
This project is seeking to develop local case studies in 10 European and non-European countries. Currently, 6 pilot cases have been proposed in Barcelona, Thessaloniki, Sofia, Porto, Sao Joao de Madeira, and Uganda. The project will take several actions to ensure the project sustainability and relevance. The first action is the creation of the International Odour Observatory to gather all relevant data and information which has been done already. On top of that, the Green Paper and Strategic Roadmap for Governance in Odour Pollution will be made available and will set the basis for future regulations. The project will also develop an engagement plan to engage stakeholders and communities, collect evidence and propose local solutions and facilitating community regulations at all the levels
Overall, the D-NOSES project will use RRI tools to identify communities that are suffering from odour nuisance, prevent socioeconomic conflicts and empower citizens to collect, share and make sense of data that can help them to pursue environmental actions.
