In order to provide patients with a high quality indoor environment and ensure a pleasant working place for medical care personnel, thermal environment and indoor air quality are regarded as two of the most important requirements. 
Peihuan Liu, Toshio Yamanaka, Ying Li, Mari Kuranaga
Norwegian building regulations refer to the NS-EN 15251 and the NS-ISO 7730 to define indoor climate criteria in new buildings. For example, the standards prescribe a temperature band of 20-26°C for a normal office situation.
Niels Lassen
The ClimACT project has been developed under the priority axis “Low Carbon Economy” of the Interreg SUDOE program. It aims to support the transition to a low carbon economy in schools.

Using natural ventilation is effective to save energy, and it is essential for energy conservation and decreasing running cost [1].
Toshihiko Sajima, Eunsu Lim, Toshio Yamanaka, Iwao Hasegawa, Akihiro Matsumoto
Because of the need of energy conservation and Business Continuity Planning (BCP), natural ventilation system, which basically does not use non-renewable energy, is attracting academic/practical attention.

Natural and Hybrid ventilation systems, by using exclusively or partially natural driving forces, help to reconcile building energy sobriety and good Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).
Gabriel Remion, Bassam Mouhalled, Mohamed El Mankibi, Romuald Jobert, Laurent Deleersnyder
Indoor environment and indoor air quality (IAQ) are considered as subjects of major concern: as we build more and more energy efficient and airtight buildings, the conflicting issues of energy efficiency, adverse health effects and discomfort beco

In France, the new Promevent protocol for ventilation system inspection in new dwellings has been published in 2017.
Adeline Bailly Mélois, Laure Mouradian
The “VIA-Qualité” project (2013-2016) aims at developing quality management (QM) approaches (ISO 9001) on ventilation and indoor air quality (IAQ), for low-energy, single-family buildings.
Sandrine Charrier, Gaëlle Guyot, Romuald Jobert, François-Rémi Carrié, Claire-Sophie Coeudevez
One of the main factors influencing building airtightness is the construction typology.
Vitor E.M. Cardoso, Nuno M.M. Ramos, Ricardo M.S.F. Almeida, Pedro F. Pereira, Manuela Almeida, Rui Sousa
The increasing weight of building leakages energy impact on the overall energy performance of low-energy buildings led to a better understanding of the actual airtightness performance of buildings.
Bassam Moujalled, Sylvain Berthault, Andrés Litvak, Valerie Leprince, Damien Louet, Gilles Frances, Julien Chèdru
In this study, durability of building airtightness was assessed by means of repeated airtightness testing of the studied houses. This approach generally involves the following issues which complicate the comparison of the test results:

The air leakage impact on energy performance in buildings has already been broadly studied in USA, Canada and most European countries. However, there is a lack of knowledge in Mediterranean countries regarding airtightness.
Irene Poza-Casado, Alberto Meiss, Miguel Ángel Padilla-Marcos, Jesús Feijó-Muñoz
The French database of building airtightness has been fed by measurement performed by qualified testers since 2006.
Bassam Moujalled, Valerie Leprince, Adeline Bailly Mélois
Since January 1st, 2018, airtightness testing has become implicitly mandatory for every new residential building in Flanders. There is no minimum requirement for airtightness.
Maarten De Strycker, Liesje Van Gelder, Valérie Leprince
What if all the devices in your life could connect to the internet?
Yves Lambert
Indoor air quality and comfort of occupants, in the context of international commitments, reduction of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions is an important subject. The Paris Agreement of 2015 on Climate set ambitious targets to limit g

The opening keynote will present an overview of the current status and future opportunities for smart buildings in Europe, in the context of the transition to more sustainable use of energy.
Philippe Moseley
Energy performance of buildings has been continuously and systematically improved in Europe with next step of transition to nearly zero energy buildings (NZEB) in 2019-2021.
