Iva Ridjan Skov from the Department of Development and Planning, prepared a comprehensive program encompassing a wide range of topics related to education, research and innovation in building energy systems.

To kick things off, we discussed the Danish education system, with a strong focus on project-based learning approach, which serves as the staple of their teaching methodology at the university. Under this approach, students are evaluated based on their collaborative performance while tackling a complex problem as a team. Meeting proceeded with Alireza Afshari, the head of the BUILD department, specialized in HVAC systems, lighting, building controls and occupant comfort. Engaging with the BUILD - Department of the Built Environment group, we discovered numerous common areas of interest, such as predictive control in buildings and strategies for mitigating virus spread using ventilation.
