AIVC's VIP 38: What is smart ventilation?

In March 2017, AIVC identified smart ventilation for buildings as a new and important topic to be addressed. Several actions were defined by AIVC Board about this topic in order to exchange and disseminate information on this topic. A working group of AIVC experts from several countries was created. One of its tasks was to agree on a definition of smart ventilation.

We are now pleased to announce the release of our  Ventilation Information Paper no 38: What is smart ventilation? aiming to present and illustrate this definition of “smart ventilation”.
