As already announced in the November issue of the AIVC newsletter, the AIVC board decided to start a project to collect, discuss and disseminate information about COVID‐19 in relation to ventilation and airtightness. A working group was created to define the activities and outputs of the project with the title ‘Ventilation, airtightness and COVID‐19’.
The Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre (https://www.aivc.org/) and the IEA EBC Annex 86 “Energy Efficient Indoor Air Quality Management in Residential Buildings” (https://annex86.iea-ebc.org/) are organizing the webinar Building ventilation: How does it affect SARS-CoV-2 transmission? to be held on April 1st, 2021 at 17:00-18:30 CET. The webinar will address the potential mitigating role of building ventilation in the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
TightVent Europe (http://www.tightvent.eu/) and the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre (http://www.aivc.org/) are organizing the webinar "Building airtightness improvements of the building stock - Analysis of European databases" to be held on Tuesday January 19th, 2021 at 10:00-11:15 (CET). The webinar aims at presenting three major European databases (in the UK, Flanders and France) and also at comparing their structures and their measurement data acquisition pro
The AIVC board decided in their last (online) meeting of September 2020 to start a project to collect, discuss and disseminate information about COVID-19 in relation to ventilation and airtightness. A working group was created to define and carry out the project, with the title ‘Ventilation, airtightness and COVID-19’.
Ventilation Information Papers (VIP) are a series of typically short AIVC publications (in most cases 6 to 10 pages) intended for giving a basic knowledge of some aspects related to the air infiltration and/or the ventilation.
