Event description


We spend up to 90% of our lives indoors. Yet the air quality inside buildings has been shown to be 2 to 5 times poorer than outdoors. This can also true for modern energy efficient buildings due to increased insulation levels and greater air tightness.

The event will be an opportunity for policy makers, industries, building designers and academia to learn how innovative eco-materials can help address both indoor air quality and energy efficiency in buildings, and discuss how best to bring those innovations to the market.

Participation is free of charge, however registration is required (please use the registration button on the right hand side). As places are limited, please make sure to register for the event no later than 31 May 2017.

ECO-SEE is a four-year project that set out to develop and assess the performance of innovative eco-building materials. As the project is nearing its conclusion, this event will build on the results of the project as well as input from other similar initiatives. More information at
