ICA2018 contributes to ensure recognition of aerobiology in society and amongst politicians, and to support aerobiological monitoring and environmental information on regional, national and international levels. Pollen, fungal spores, allergens and other biological particles are fundamental components of the air quality assessment and should therefore be included in the corresponding regulations. To reach these goals, an interdisciplinary approach and in particular a close collaboration between aerobiologists and clinicians with botanists, environmentalists, urban designers, public authorities etc. are necessary in order to broaden our horizon, to improve the health and the quality of life, to reduce direct and indirect sanitary costs and to preserve the quality of the environment.
