Noise Awareness Forum


The main focus of the Noise Awareness Forum is to highlight the importance of sound and related sciences and technologies. Our aim is to encourage sector and industry experts to share and exchange information about the latest innovations, sector potential and opportunities as well as highlight environmental and societal challenges. We aspire to initiate and facilitate a dialog between the industry, academia and public sector administration regulating the acoustic sector to enable cross-fertilisation, an exchange of knowledge and transfer of good practice.

The Noise Awareness Forum is organised by KFB Acoustics, one of the leaders and providers of specialised engineering services. The conference is organised with a support of acoustic and vibroacoustic experts from KU Leuven, PWR, Zagreb University as well as LE Mans University and RWTH, our partners in projects ACI and ASKNOW respectively.
We will discuss about noise management at work and in the environment. The speakers and panellists will share their knowledge and best practice on the importance of sound in everyday life and the ways of mitigating a negative impact of noise on health. They will also share information on newest trends and innovative technologies that help manage noise in an effective and environmentally friendly manner.

The organisers are hoping that this conference will become a regular event that will strengthen a position of Poland as a leader in supporting innovations in industry on international arena.
