Welcome to this website which belongs to the QUADMAP project being a LIFE+ project on Quiet Urban Areas. The acronym QUADMAP stands for QUiet Areas Definition and Management in Action Plans. The project aims to deliver a method and guidelines regarding identification, delineation, characterisation, improvement and managing Quiet Areas in urban areas as meant in the Environmental Noise Directive 2002/49/EC.

The project will also help understand the definition of a Quiet Urban Area, the meaning and the added value for the city and their citizens in terms of health, social safety and lowering stress levels in men.
