DTU has large-scale modern facilities for conducting research on the impact of the indoor climate on human comfort, health, and productivity.
Our research focuses on people and their health, comfort, and performance when exposed to the indoor environment in our homes, at work, in schools, during transportation, etc. We need more knowledge on, how different indoor environment conditions – including heat, air, light, and sound – affect people’s well-being overall.
We perform extensive studies, both under well-controlled conditions in the laboratory and in the field, to characterize different indoor environments and their impact on humans. Based on these insights, we develop heating, ventilation, and cooling systems to condition indoor environments optimal for occupants in new and sustainable ways.
We have a strong collaboration with industry, both for the exchange of knowledge and for the development of new technologies.
