The AQMRC was part of the Management Committee on the EU Framework INTEGAIRE project. INTEGAIRE is a network of urban professionals, scientists and networks, which have an extensive expertise in air quality management.
It was established in March 2002 under the key action "City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage" of the European Fifth Framework research programme and aims at improving urban air quality and assessment by developing recommendations on urban governance and on integration of this specific matter into other policy areas.
The project carried out a survey of air quality management practice across Europe and consisted of ten partner cities, four European research centres, and the European city network, Eurocities. The project was regarded as highly successful by the European Commission, particularly with regard to two reports submitted to them via the Clean Air For Europe programme (CAFÉ).
