In this paper we describe and summarize the main achievements of the European  Aerosol Cloud Climate and Air Quality Interactions project (EUCAARI). EUCAARI  started on 1 January 2007 and ended on 31 December 2010 leaving a rich legacy

including: (a) a comprehensive database with a year of observations of the physical, chemical and optical properties of aerosol particles over Europe, (b) the first comprehensive aerosol measurements in four developing countries, (c) a database of airborne measurements of aerosols and clouds over Europe during May 2008, (d) comprehensive modeling tools to study aerosol processes fron nano to global scale and their ef10 fects on climate and air quality. In addition a new Pan-European aerosol emissions inventory was developed and evaluated, a new cluster spectrometer was built and tested in the field and several  new aerosol parameterizations and computations modules for chemical transport and global climate models were  veloped and evaluated. This work enabled EUCAARI to improve our understanding of aerosol radiative forcing  15 and air quality-climate interactions. The EUCAARI results can be utilized in European  and global environmental policy to assess the erosol impacts and the corresponding  abatement strategies.
