The SEARCH II project is a continuation of the School Environment and Respiratory Health of Children initiative that was first launched in 2006. The research project is implemented within the international frameworks of the EU Action Plan on Environment and Health and the World Health Organization's Children's Environment and Health Action Plan for Europe.
Issue 3 of the newsletter looks ahead to the successful completion of the SEARCH II project in November 2013. It highlights recent activities in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia, where cooperation has continued with schools that had already participated in the first phase of the SEARCH initiative. It also introduces the work of the Italian expert team that has begun compiling an international working document based on the experience gained during the project.
The SEARCH II project is implemented with the contribution of the REC's Health and Environment Topic Area, and with the financial support of the Italian Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea.
