ITaRS scientific objectives are:

  • to bring together experts from the aerosol and cloud community to efficiently tackle the problems of aerosol-cloud interaction as well as their relevance for climate and weather;
  • to build close ties between industry and research to optimize instrumentation for future networks;
  • to assess the potential of advanced remote-sensing instrumentation and capabilities as an ingredient in a future observation system based on both ground-based networks and space-borne observations;
  • to speed up technological transfer from research to industry by direct involvement of the private sector in specific training & research programmes, secondments and joint patents.
