Pilot Cases


PILOT CASES

Building Management System BMS

The project will lead to a common methodology called the Building Management System (BMS), which allows the selection, implementation, validation and benchmarking of a variety of IAQ solutions at each demonstration site.

This is the final step to test the effectiveness of the proposals made in the different phases of the project, which will be embodied in the six pilot cases (two per country). This will demonstrate the cross-cutting impact of various solutions in improving IAQ in schools, laying the groundwork for a comparative analysis and strengthening collaboration between all partners.
The pilot cases will also help to demonstrate the impact of improved classroom air quality on student performance, as well as energy efficiency in educational buildings.

IoT sensors will be installed to monitor IAQ-related parameters such as temperature, CO2, humidity, VOCs, PMs and hazardous microbiological organisms, as well as associated health issues. Issues such as comfort and the subjective perception of occupants will also be addressed.

Master’s theses

Carried out by students who will complete a thesis relating to the project, contributing to the design of a smart and sustainable strategy for ensuring good air quality in classrooms. This will serve as a knowledgeable basis for future projects.

  • An evaluation of the IAQ in different parts of the university and kindergarten. The chemical, physical and microbiological parameters will be measured to identify emission sources, and measures will be identified to improve IAQ, performance and health.

  • Master’s thesis at the University of Toulouse on the correlation between the data acquired in the teaching rooms and about the wellbeing of the end users (students and teachers).

  • The relation between energy efficiency and indoor air quality in university buildings.

  • Based on the pilot experience by UPV / EHU, this will evaluate the indoor air quality of some classrooms, linking the IAQ with different aspects relating to health and the performance of students and teaching staff.
