Improving indoor air quality in schools in the Netherlands

My research is focused on improving indoor air quality (IAQ) in schools in the Netherlands as part of the ECOS-IAQ project.

Phase 2 of SBIR project on sustainable medical isolation gowns gets started

In June, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) accepted the second phase of the SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) tender. In this SBIR project, Eindhoven Engine and its partners TNO and HAVEP will develop sustainable medical isolation gowns that can be used multiple times. With an allocation of almost EUR 290,000, the partners will further test the feasibility of the isolation gowns. Work to obtain certification is ongoing and the first 1,000 insulation jackets will be produced in September. In the fall, the gowns will be tested by medical parties and the results will be collected.
