Co-ordination

The ECA Steering Committee (coordinated and managed by the JRC/IHCP/PCE Unit) consists of 33 distinguished scientists from 15 EU countries States (plus Norway and Switzerland), WHO and the European Commission. During the 18 years of its operation more than 100 scientists of leading European Institutions have contributed to its activities through their participation in various WGs, prepared and delivered 23 state of the art reports which have been distributed to more than 1400 addresses in Europe and worldwide.

Integration

The inter- and multidisciplinary research area of indoor exposure and health in EU and worldwide covers practical and scientific aspects ranging from technical to medical research disciplines. The overall scientific area can be split into six areas of special focus: (a) exposure measurements, (b) health effects, (c) buildings science and design, (d) exposure modeling, (e) indoor air quality control and (f) exposure risk assessment and management.

Objectives

The focus of the activity is urban & indoor air pollution exposure assessment, seen as part of human health risk assessment and also considering the needs of urban and indoor air quality management. Specific examples of the working areas of ECA are:

What is VIP about

Ventilation Information Papers (VIP) are a series of short AIVC publications (6 to 8 pages) intended for giving a basic knowledge of some aspects related to the air infiltration and/or the ventilation.

The International Journal of Ventilation

The International Journal of Ventilation is devoted to the ventilation of occupied buildings and other enclosed spaces. Inaugurated in June 2002 it has rapidly become established and has attracted subscribers from major institutions, companies and universities in over 40 countries.

AIVC, TightVent and venticool networks

 

The TightVent network was launched in January 2011 with a specific focus on building and ductwork airtightness. The 2011, 2012 and 2013 AIVC conferences were combined with the 1st, 2nd and 3rd TightVent conference. In addition, there are several AIVC projects dealing with the topic of airtightness whereby TightVent is involved.
