Abstract: The aim of the Pollution Reduction Options Network (PRONET) project is to facilitate exchange and evaluation of interventions on environment and health exposure reduction measures on a regional level, and promote implementation of successful initiatives in other regions of Europe. This project will focus on the exchange of useful practices in two key areas in environmental health policy:(1) the reduction of transport-related health hazards (air pollution and noise) and (2) the improvement of the indoor environment by reducing indoor exposure to environmental health hazards. The collection of measures on reducing indoor exposure is done by means of a call for case studies among a large group of stakeholders in Europe and through literature search. The final results of PRONET include: (1) a platform to aid exchange of useful information and practical experience in improving indoor environment and transport and (2) a searchable database with good practice examples in reducing exposure to indoor environment pollutants and transport-related examples. The total of potentially relevant publications found was 636, of which 48% were related to biological agents, 25% to physical and 21% to chemical factors in the indoor environment.
