Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of €82,500 (approximately $87,743 at the time of conversion) to the University of Helsinki to support travel grants for the European Geosciences Union conference in 2023. These grants will support scientists who are based in Africa or South/Southeast Asia and are researching measurement or modeling-based approaches to addressing air pollution in these regions; recipients will attend a conference session on this topic.

This falls within Open Philanthropy’s focus area of South Asian air quality.
