The aims of this work package are to:

1. Identify potentially important confounders/effect modifiers in studies on noise effects on health including air pollution and individual susceptibility factors such as lifestyle and environment factors

2. To hold a workshop to bring together experts on moderating factors of noise-related health effects

3. Propose strategies for assessment, analysis and interpretation of the role of such factors in health-related noise research

4 Facilitate and develop interactions between researchers in different fields relevant for studies of effect modification in relation to noise and health

5. To perform further policy relevant analyses of HYENA, RANCH and other datasets
