Common Information to European Air (CITEAIR and CITEAIR II) were projects co-funded by the European Union's INTERREG IIIC and IVC Programmes. ... The projects started in March 2004 and ended in December 2011. Throughout this period it supports cities and regions in developing efficient means to collect, present and compare air quality data across a multitude of sites and provides furthermore an input to the air quality reporting and action planning. Thus, CITEAIR supports European cities and regions in their efforts to meet limit values and improve the air quality for their citizens.
