Multisensors and Other New Technology for Improved indoor Environment in buildings
MONTIE is a Nordic project, sponsored by the Nordic Innovation Centre. The goal is to establish a strong Nordic knowledge base and discussion forum to address the current – and future uses - of advanced multisensors to provide key information about indoor air quality (IAQ) of relevance to health, comfort and conservation of resources. This will be combined with information about other technological advances to support the development of improved HVAC systems. In the Nordic countries there is considerable academic and practical expertise within all the disciplines related to this field and special focus will be placed on the possibilities of converting expert academic knowledge into practical applications and use.
The following areas of interest will be addressed during the project:
- Indoor environment
- Sensors and measurements
- HVAC control and installation technology
Project activities are centred on a comprehensive information plan to spread knowledge about the importance of indoor environment together with the advantages resulting from the use of microsensors and other technological advances to provide relevant and accurate measurements of indoor environment parameters. Increased information and awareness will provide the foundations for initiating coherent efforts to increase the level of knowledge about indoor environment, and to spread this knowledge widely in order to increase and initiate new development activities.
Bringing together partners with complimentary competencies in a synergy is expected to enable the Nordic region to become a leading centre for research and development within the indoor environment field. The goal is to initiate and boost the number of indoor environment development activities and to increase business and commercial export opportunities.
