The main outcomes of the project, which are the potential for practical application or solving social problems with control of exposure of population in buildings with public access and workplaces in them, are:

The project will contribute to the acquisition of new knowledge on the radon concentration variation in public buildings as well as seasonal variation, geological unit dependence and other factors at national level.

The models for radon risk assessment will help for more expeditious identification of existing buildings with high indoor radon concentration and will improve the control and reducing the radon exposure of population.

The analysis of seasonal variation in buildings with public access will give opportunities for correct annual dose and risk assessment when the measurement are made for short time and as well as taking in account the exact spend time in the buildings.

The grouping (clustering) the building according the factors which influence on radon concentration, as spatially geography unit, building characteristics, habits will give opportunities to improvement prevention of the new buildings from entrance of the radon in them.

The project will help for improve air quality in buildings, with special attention will be paid to kindergartens and schools where the children spent the most of the time, respectively for prevention of health of peoples.

This project covers the priority areas of the Strategy for Development of Science in Bulgaria until 2030 in health and quality of life, as the problem of the concentration of radon in building with public access.

The focus of the project in line with the objectives of the National Research Strategy to 2030 and with National research priorities will raise the country’s position in the field of health radon risk assessment, raise public confidence in science, retain and attract young and leading scientists in Bulgaria.
