No direct involvement RIVM Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu
Contrary to what the name suggests, there is no direct involvement between Measure Together of the RIVM and Samen Meten Meierijstad. It is a beautiful example of a Citizen Science Network founded by citizens, supported by local government, that makes use of the Measure Together infrastructure without needing any further support from RIVM. The information on samenmeten.nl and the access to the database suffice.
In six months, Samen Meten Meierijstad has installed more than 100 PM sensor boxes. The members of the working group build the sensor kits themselves and provide technical support. They use the Sensor.Community method.
