FP7 PERFECTION :  COORDINATION ACTION FOR PERFORMANCE  INDICATORS FOR HEALTH, COMFORT AND SAFETY OF THE INDOOR ENVIRONMENT – Grant Agreement 212998

PERFECTION is a coordination action for which the main objective is the development of a framework and a set of indicators concerning the overall quality of the indoor environment of buildings. The main focus is on issues such as comfort, health and safety, but also accessibility, positive stimulation of people and sustainability will be covered. The long-term aim of PERFECTION is to help enabling the application of new building design and technologies that improve the impact of the indoor built environment on the human well being.

The project concept consists of the following components: (i) the inventory of current standards, regulations, technologies and ongoing and recent research activities and policies related with optimal indoor environment; (ii) analysis of current indoor performance indicators and their applicability positioned within a generic framework, and identifying areas where new indicators for health and safety should be developed; (iii) experiences from use cases of building design and technologies exploiting the indicators in different building types; (iv) identification of incentives and barriers for the wide use of performance indicators; (v) a roadmap and recommendations for building design and technologies, and support for policies;(vi) a wide dissemination of findings through an extensive expert network.

The project was introduced in the FP7-ENV 2007-1 call, started on the 1st January 2009 and will run for 3 years. The kickoff meeting took place in Brussels on 10-11 February 2009. A first open workshop is scheduled for the end of 2009, and will take place in Poland.
 
The project is carried out by 11 members (BBRI - Belgium, VTT-Finland, Apintech-Greece, CTU-Czech Republic, ARMINES–France, Kornadt–Germany, ICTAF–Israel, SITI–Italy, TUE-The Netherlands, ASM Poland and BRE–U.K.) and is linked to an extensive network of experts representing industry, academia and research from all over Europe.
