IAA Basic Aerobiology Courses

The Basic Aerobiology Courses have been devised as a result of the growing interest in monitoring airborne particles. The increasing number of national aeroallergen networks that have been set up has enabled scientists to compare procedures and deepen fundamentals of monitoring techniques. Consequently the need for a higher quality level of analysis and for a standardization of procedures has emerged. To the purpose, an educational programme to train technicians and laboratory workers has been brought forward and was started with a series of European Courses in Aerobiology. The first European Course was held at Krems, Austria in 1993. The next will be held in Rzeszow, Poland, July 20-26, 2015.
