Trinity College Dublin launched its Engineering, Energy and Environment (E3) Institute Strategy in 2012.This initative is embedded in the College’s strategic plan and will build novel cross-disciplinary research and teaching programmes. The E3 initative aims to design, discover and guide optimal human and technology interventions which will improve the state of the world.


Under this initiative a new collaboration between the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering and the Department of Geology has received funding (€249,000) from the Environmental Protection Agency EPA Research 2014-2020 programme, from 2016 to 2018, to examine a key current environmental challenge: the impact of diesel vehicles on the exposure of the population to particulate air pollution in Ireland.
