University of Eastern Finland will organize an Open Day on the LIFE Anniversary Day on Kuopio campus.

During the Open Day, residential wood combustion simulator unit (SIMO), unique wood combustion laboratory globally, will be demonstrated. The experts will demonstrate emission measurement methods and instruments at SIMO and present their “Real-LIFE emissions” project funded by LIFE programme. The project aims to harmonize testing methods for measuring solid fuel emissions in Europe. In addition, projects regarding the emissions of sauna stoves (KIUAS2) and reduction of black carbon emissions from stoves will be presented. The event will also show how wood is combusted with low emissions.

Basically, this informal event will be held onsite in the SIMO located on Kuopio campus, but we will also offer online participation opportunity via online link.

The event is suitable for researchers, experts in the field of residential combustion, journalists, students, stove manufactures, policy makers and other relevant individuals interested in climate and health sciences. All interested are warmly welcome to join the event, and those who would like to participate online, please contact by email in the address for the online link. Welcome!

The LIFE programme is the EU's funding instrument for the environment and climate action. SIMO is part of the University of Eastern Finland's Department of Environmental and Biological Sciences Laboratory of Small Particle and Aerosol Technology (FINE).
