For over 20 years, the AIVC has been a key player in developments in technical knowledge on ventilation and related issues, and has always been very active in the dissemination of information. Since its creation in 1979, there has been a substantial change in the users' expectations of how information on ventilation knowledge should be disseminated. The AIVC has always tried to adapt its strategies to these evolving needs. In the first part of this paper, a brief historic overview is made. It is followed by a more extensive discussion of our envisaged new approach.
