venticool newsletter, Issue 4, June 2014, now available!

With the increasing weight of energy performance regulations on market uptake in the building sector, bridging the gap between scientific and regulatory approaches on ventilative cooling is crucial. As you will learn through this newsletter, venticool works on several initiatives to build this bridge. In particular, with its foreseen plenary presentations and topical sessions as well as the abstracts collected through the call, the programme of the 35th AIVC and 2nd venticool conference to be held in Poznan, Poland 24-25 September 2014 already sounds very promising.
