The expert forum, initiated jointly by the VDI/DIN Commission on Air Pollution Prevention (KRdL) and the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA), aims to present the latest research results and questions:

  • Novel approaches in sampling, measuring and assessing the health effect of specific bioaerosol components
  • State of the art work place measurements and detection techniques
  • Current standardization activities in Germany

In addition, experts from selected European partner countries will give an insight into aspects and focal points of their country's bioaerosol standardization and research activities. In a subsequent wrap-up meeting, new topics and priorities will be identified, which may lead to joint European activities.

An accompanying poster session offers the opportunity to present results and experiences and to discuss them with the experts present.

With this event KRdL and BAuA want to offer a neutral and independent platform for this highly complex and controversially discussed topic.
