The project aims to support the University of Prishtina in capacity building for the analysis of environmental and associated human health risk assessment by further strengthening the existing partnership between the University of Salzburg and the University of Prishtina.

As a consequence the combined efforts are likely to have a more profound impact on public awareness.
