Symposium P3Venti

Date: Wednesday, February 28, 2024 Time: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM, followed by a drink Location: Binnenklimaat Nederland, Zoetermeer

Pandemic Preparedness through Ventilation

Visit the P3Venti Symposium on Wednesday February 28 2024 in Zoetermeer! TNO and its partners are happy to discuss the benefits of ventilation and its role in preventing the spreading of viruses. At the symposium we will share our findings, and bring together science and practice in order to learn from each other and align our work. With inspiring speakers and active workshops we will make it an energetic day. Sign up now to learn from each other and join the conversation on how we can make the P3Venti research program even better aligned with the questions that arise in both science and practice.

Cross-pollination between practice and research
P3Venti is at the intersection of science and practice. Findings or questions from one field of knowledge or one industry can be of great importance for other work fields and branches. During this symposium we will share the research results of the P3Venti program so far. In addition, we want to discuss the associated action perspective. How can we use the results for other studies? And what do they mean for my own healthcare institution? In addition, we want to retrieve which questions arise in the scientific field and within long-term healthcare institutions so that we can make the research program even more in line with this.

Symposium participants
This symposium focuses on scientists in the field of virus spread and the role of ventilation in this, as well as on the long-term care: decision makers/administrators/directors, facility managers, property owners and care providers of long-term care institutions.


10:00 - 11:00 h               Reception

11:00 - 12:30 h               Plenary program with among others:

  • Francine L’Ortye, Program director Pandemic Preparedness public health of the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport

  • Updates from results concerning microbiology, technology and policy

12:30 - 13:30 h              Network lunch

13:30 - 15:30 h              Workshops in two rounds, about among others:

  • What do these results mean for my healthcare facility? And how can I incorporate this into my (real estate) policy or investment decisions?  

  • How can the various (international) research programmes such as E3, Buildings Post Corona, CLAIRE and P3Venti fit together?  

  • What are existing knowledge gaps? How do we organize the dissemination as effectively as possible? 

15:30 - 17:00 h              Keynote of Benjamin Jones & panel discussion

Benjamin Jones is Associate Professor at the Department of Architecture and Built Environment, University of Nottingham. The focus of Benjamin's work is on measurement and modelling approaches to the indoor environment that can inform policies to create low-carbon and healthy building stocks. He is particularly interested in the energy efficient ventilation of buildings and its relationship with indoor air quality and occupant health. Benjamin supported the pandemic responses of the UK and Chilean governments and worked on ASHRAE Standard 241 that aims to Control Infectious Aerosols in buildings.
