Future Urban Ventilation Network

The Future Urban Ventilation Network will develop a technical framework to enable a new integrated health evidenced approach to urban building design and technology innovation – The Breathing City.

We will create a strategy for a new holistic approach considering coupled indoor-outdoor flows in the context of current and future air quality challenges together with their impacts on thermal comfort, noise and energy use.

We will bring together researchers, practitioners and policy makers to understand technical and practice challenges, scope this new approach and develop a programme of research and impact activities that are needed to make it a reality.
