Creating healthy indoor circumstances in real estate buildings

Posted on

Type Research internship

Research indicates multiple straightforward adjustments in real estate buildings (e.g. increasing the use of natural materials or ventilation regulated by CO2 concentrations) can contribute to creating healthier indoor circumstances. However, due to missing links between the scientific research and practical problems/solutions, most of such improvements are not being applied on a larger scale. In order to deal with this issue and improve current building practices, we are looking for an intern that is interested in researching the scientifically available practical solutions and linking them to possible adjustments in real estate buildings. The results should at least be presented in in a clear overview which is ready for implementation.
