MEMO2: MEthane goes MObile – MEsurements and MOdelling

ESR projects

Within MEMO2 13 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) will be trained. All ESRs are working together to identify and evaluate methane (CH4) emissions and to support mitigation measure. This is a complex and divers research field, and each ESR will contribute by working on a defined sub-project.
