Abstract: The course encompassed informative sessions on the policy context, indicators and harmonised methodologies for indoor air monitoring and quality assurance aspects to enhance data comparability, accompanied by hands-on sessions. Furthermore a in a dedicated session elaboration of laboratory results were illustrated a web based tool was presented. The combination of theoretical basis and practical sessions in a tight agenda has allowed more interaction with and among participants on the practical laboratory work needs for a proper design and execution of the field monitoring campaigns and emission product testing. In total 33 external participants including 6 speakers as well as 7 internal representatives of JRC.IHCP.I.1 (5 speakers) took part in this training program. The Training Course was aimed as a capacity building activity targeting the countries involved in the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) and other EU Accession and Candidate countries and aims at providing hands on training on: a) State-of-the-art techniques, standards and protocols to measure and monitor a wide array of health relevant air pollutants and tools for evaluating the associated health effects in buildings as well as quality control/assurance to enhance data comparability across regions/ countries b) Methodologies to test emissions from construction materials and consumer products and evaluate the associated health risks
