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.
