40th AIVC - 8th TightVent & 6th venticool Conference - From energy crisis to sustainable indoor climate

The 40th AIVC conference  will be held on 15 and 16 October 2019 in Ghent, Belgium. It will also be the 8th TightVent conference and the 6th venticool conference.

From energy crisis to sustainable indoor climate
40 years of AIVC


The event will place its focus on:

  • Smart ventilation, IAQ and health relationships
  • Airtightness
  • Ventilative cooling – Resilient cooling

The conference programme will include well‐prepared and structured sessions focused on the conference topics, invited speakers, long and short oral presentations arising from the call, as well as 90 seconds industry presentations.

Confirmed topical sessions
