Tampere University of Technology (TUT)
Tampere University of Technology (TUT) conducts research in the fields of technology and architecture and provides higher education based on this research. It has 10’500 under- and postgraduate students and ca. 2000 employees, and its annual budget is ca. 160 M€. Two of the TUT thematic research areas are relevant for DownToTen: firstly, Energy and eco-efficiency, which aims to increasing global well-being by finding or optimizing new technologies that are cleaner, safer, and more efficient, and secondly, Industrial competitiveness, which focuses on efficiency and productivity while protecting the environment.
Role in the project
In DownToTen, TUT will apply the knowledge of nanoparticle emissions in the sub-23 nm size range. TUT will test the selected measurement systems in its own aerosol laboratory with artificial exhaust gas in WP2. TUT will also be active in the real exhaust studies in WP3 and WP4, especially in addressing the physical and chemical properties, composition, and sources of the non-volatile primary particles will be studied, as well as those of the delayed primary and secondary particles.
