Who we are
Motivated by the political activities of the Aachen IPPNW group and the AAA a team of engineers and computer professionals was constituted in 2016 to develop, build up, and operate an alternative cross-border monitoring network. The Aachen-based core group is supported by a team of Karel-de-Grote Hogeschool, Campus Hoboken, Antwerpen. Contributions to the software development have been provided by trainees of RWTH Aachen University and students of University College Düsseldorf. AAA liaise locations for the hosting of sensor stations in Belgium and support their installation.
The project is realised by voluntary work alone. Only the purchase of the components for the manufacturing and installation of sensor stations (about 250 € per station) is financed by donations. All donations will exclusively and in full extent benefit the project. Donations are eligible for tax relief. They are transacted by way of the donations account of our parent non-profit organization FIfF.
