The MED-PARTICLES project included stakeholders from the political and administrative bodies at national and EU level. Political authorities include representatives of the European Commission, and of national and regional Environmental Protection Agencies.

Both the Italian Environment Ministry and the Italian Health Ministry are involved. The same happens in Spain, Greece and France. To bring specific user needs to the attention of the project, the partners used their involvement in the on-going technical bodies to make sure the project results as well as its methodology development have the maximum impact on policy both during the project and afterwards with a special attention to the dissemination. Local authorities such as Lazio Region and the Municipality of Rome have been involved as stakeholders particularly for those aspects referring to the health impact and possible mitigation strategies. Environmental authorities contribution in MED-PARTICLES activities have been facilitated by the direct participation, as associated beneficiary, of the Piedmont and Emilia-Romagna Regional Environmental Protection Agencies (ARPA).

Private industrial and technical organizations (car industry, producers of air pollution abatement technologies, producers of air pollution measurement techniques, air pollution modelers, air pollution epidemiologists) have been involved to verify abatement technologies to be considered in technical measures.

MED-PARTICLES progresses have been disseminated toward NGOs, environmental activists and citizens trying to answer some of the main worries concerning particulate air pollution.
