The Serbian Noise Congress “Sharing Sound in Serbia” will be held in Belgrade on 7 November 2012. The congress is organised in conjunction with the Government to Government (G2G) project on the Environmental Noise Directive 2002/49/EC which aims to build capacity among Serbian authorities at a national, regional and local level. This G2G project was commissioned by the Dutch government and is carried out by DCMR EPA, the Environmental Protection Agency in the Rotterdam Metropolitan Area.
The Environmental Noise Directive 2002/49/EC is implemented in Serbia, as in many other European Member States, and aims to improve the environmental, acoustical quality of life in cities and nature areas. This poses many challenges to authorities, experts and science; health, noise abatement techniques, noise mapping and involving citizens in moving towards a sound(er) environment are key issues for the next years
The theme of the congress is “Sharing Sound in Serbia”. Respected speakers from Serbia, the Balkan region and from elsewhere in Europe will present their views, opinions and experience in these topics. The congress will be of
particular interest for (regional and municipal) policy, environmental and noise experts which have to deal with these tasks as required by the Environmental Noise Directive in the near future. Also institutes and companies involved in environmental, spatial and acoustical topics can find many interesting presentations for their future work.
The Serbian Noise Congress 2012 will be held at the Hyatt hotel, a five star property at the heart of New Belgrade in Belgrade.
The programme is already available. During the next weeks and months we will provide regular updates and new information; you are heartily invited to check the latest news on the congress website. We look forward to welcoming you in Belgrade on 7 November 2012!
