HEALTHY BUILDINGS 2021 EUROPE Conference: Healthy & Sustainable Built Environment for the Future. June 21-23, 2021 Oslo, Norway

Banner for the Healthy Buildings 2021 - Europe conference

Overarching themes for the conference

  • Exposure phenomena:
    • Indoor chemistry (e.g. NOx, ozone, VOCs incl. SVOC, particles & aerosols)
    • Health effects: Indoor pathology (e.g. cancer, toxicology), indoor microbiology/microbiome, allergy, endocrinology, EMF/ions/radon
    • Comfort and Psychophysics: e.g. thermal comfort, odour, sound, daylight
    • Behaviour and adaptation: preferences, comfort, productivity & adaptation​, psychosocial environment

  • Source control / exposure mitigation:
    • Building materials: Source control & exposure mitigation
    • Ventilation strategies and air cleaning
    • COVID19 pandemic response measures
    • Climate change/adaptation (overheating, precipitation issues)
    • Urban issues: outdoor air quality, urban canyons & heat-island effect.
    • Moisture: Prevention (e.g. mould/rot), remediation (e.g. drying methods), humidification & dehumidification, building physics
    • Thermal environment: Heating, cooling, passive measures and thermal performance
    • Noise and acoustics
    • Actinic environment: e.g. radon

  • Measurement methods:
    • IEQ sensor & instrumentation technology
    • IEQ compliance-checking / commissioning
    • Occupational hygiene & performance studies: Biosensors/-markers etc

  • Best-practice design and operation (buildings & HVAC):
    • Methods for optimal design & operation of the built environment
    • Building-usability studies
    • Human-centred evaluation of new technology and building materials
    • Health care buildings (hospitals, nursing homes, infectious disease measures)

  • Decarbonization/sustainable renovation:
    • Deep renovation of existing European building stock
    • Digital tools (e.g. BIM/BuildSim/CFD) for design, operation and user-interaction
    • Energy use, costs & LCA versus IEQ & health

  • Policy, regulation, compliance:
    • Statutory directives (e.g. EPBD), building codes
    • Standards, product documentation, labelling schemes
    • Voluntary codes of practice / building process
