This year, Olores.org, the site that deals with Environmental odour management, is organising another edition of Odour talks on the 27th of October 2022. This course will be broadcasted online through our meeting platform for free, starting at 10 AM EDT (16:00 CEST). Five experts will expose their points of view on how to account for Odour exposure and annoyance.
The course will be an online open seminar followed by a round table and open discussion. The registration is open to any participant interested in Odour Impact, Exposure & annoyance.
No organization or conference deals with the impact of odour on exposure and health. Many papers have been published in different journals over the years. However, to our knowledge, there is no specific forum to deal with the study of odour-related exposure and annoyance impact. This Odour Talks pretends to lay the foundation for initiatives on this topic.
This time, the course will be held online through our webinar channel. This way, much more people will be able to attend the presentations, followed by a round table and open discussion. The Odour Talks are an excellent opportunity to learn more about odour exposure and annoyance from International experts:
