23 March 2018, Workshop, Sydney (AU) - Ventilation for Indoor Air Quality and Cooling
23 - 23 March 2018 | Sydney, Australia
09:00 Europe/Brussels

Aiming to inform Australian researchers and engineers on recent developments in the field of ventilation technologies, the workshop gave international experts visiting Australia the opportunity to present global research to their local counterparts.The workshop showcased research that determines optimum ventilation levels and the development of advanced ventilation technologies to promote comfort, energy conservation and better indoor environmental quality in buildings.

The Ventilation for Indoor Air Quality and Cooling workshop aimed to:

  • Discuss the optimum use of natural, mechanical and hybrid ventilation technologies to promote health, productivity, IAQ, energy conservation and thermal comfort
  • Present the recent achievements in Australia in terms of ventilation technologies
  • Provide a forum for international and local experts to discuss the future of ventilation technologies for the building sector
