Background of LMC
Issues of sound enviroments are often complex and touch upon many different academic disciplines outside acoustics, audiology or musicology, such as for example: ethics, law, psychology, ergonomics or linguistics. The activites of the center involve coordination, initiation and stimulating interdisciplinary research projects and developing contacts with both the research community and society, as well as information and the planning of symposiums and seminars.
The center has a solid ground in theory and method stemming from the competences in specific disciplines such as acoustics, environmental medicine, audiology, landscapeplanning, linguistics, musicology and psychology. The interdisciplinary design of the center fascilitates cooperation and wider perspectives of research.
