LIFE10 ENV/IT/000407 QUADMAP (Quiet areas definition and management in action plans)
Duration: september 2011 – june 2015
Partner: BRUITPARIF, DCMR Environmental
Protection Agency, Ayuntamiento de Bilbao,
Tecnalia, VIE EN.RO.SE Ingegneria Srl, Comune di Firenze
Goal: to develop a harmonised methodology for the selection, quantitative and qualitative assessment and management of Urban Quiet Areas defined by the European Directive on Environmental Noise 2002/49/EC. Data collection and analysis was carried out in 10 pilot areas located in Italy, the Netherlands, and Spain. The introduction of a harmonised approach will also lead to a new monitoring tool, which will make it possible to monitor the management of the Quiet Areas on the basis of common indicators.
LIFE15 ENV/IT/000586 LIFE MONZA (Methodologies fOr Noise low emission Zones introduction And management)
Duration: september 2016 – june 2020
Partner: UNIFI - DIEF, COMUNE DI MONZA, VIE EN.RO.SE Ingegneria Srl
Goal: develop a new methodology for noise management within a Low Emission Zone (LEZ) that will be applied in a pilot area in the city of Monza in Italy. The methodology will be easily replicable and will contribute to the implementation of the EU Environmental Noise Directive (END), which requires the development of noise management plans. In fact, the Directive does not provide a definition of LEZ in relation to noise pollution.
