Available On-site

Fab Lab Barcelona’s collaboration with ISGlobal – Barcelona Institute for Global Health developed and deployed 102 low-cost measurement sensors installed in 15 schools across Barcelona. The sensors used were that of Fab Lab Barcelona’s Smart Citizen project. The Smart Citizen sensors capture various environmental conditions – from air pollution to noise level data and then transmit the data autonomously to the central Smart Citizen platform, connected to other Smart Citizen sensors from across the globe.

The ISGlobal consists of a collaboration between organisations La Caixa, academic institutions and governmental bodies. ISGlobal works towards the understanding and addressing challenges in global health, priding itself on its work towards progressive scientific research and the ability to transfer this knowledge to practice.

This project was commissioned within the framework of the research project ‘Blue, green & grey: adapting schools to climate change ’ around the improvement of the adaptability of educational centres in Barcelona to climate change and was financed by the European Union. The project reflected the reputability of the Smart Citizen sensors and their ability to capture accurate data which contributed towards IS Global’s wider mission.
