This project was supported by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, Division V/5 – Transport, Mobility, Human Settlement and Noise and by the Swedish Expertise Fund, and facilitated by the Karolinska Institute, Sweden. The project benefited greatly from systematic reviews being undertaken for the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) in the United Kingdom. The consensus workshop (Graz, Austria, 15–16 May 2007) was facilitated by the University of Graz.
