This paper focuses on two key questions: (i) how universal are approaches to teaching and training in the area of science and practice of environmental noise management, and (ii) is it possible, practical or desirable to transfer training programmes from one geographical, cultural or economical reality to another? The paper attempts to answer the two questions from the broad perspective of linking parallels between teaching the science of environmental noise management and teaching in an interdisciplinary area in general. The conclusion drawn is that transfer of knowledge and technology in teaching in the area of environmental noise management is possible and desirable. The success of programme transfer depends on the understanding of the philosophy of teaching in this area as well as on understanding local needs requirements and limitations.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
