Surface Boundary Layer Refractive Index in Greece, Turkey and UK, relevant to Optical and Microwave Frequencies in Aerospace Operations

Start: 1-1-1997
End: 31-12-1999

Total Bubget: 5,870 Euro

This project dealt with measurements of temperature and relative humidity in three different altitudes and the calculation of the index of refraction in optical and microwave frequencies. The other partners involved in this project were the Centre for Research and Technology of the Hellenic Air Force, the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory - Radio Communications Research Unit from the UK and the Middle East Technical University - Dept. of Aeronautical Engineering in Turkey.

Scientist Responsible: Dr. H. Kambezidis

IEA Task 25, Solar Assisted Air Conditioning of Buildings (International Energy Agency - IEA).

Start: 1-6-1999
End: 30-11-2004

Total Budget: Voluntary participation

International Energy Agency, Solar Heating & Cooling Programme, Task 25 "Solar Assisted Air Conditioning of Buildings". Improve the conditions for the market entry of solar assisted cooling systems in order to promote a reduction of primary energy consumption and electricity peak loads due to cooling. Define the performance criteria of solar assisted cooling systems considering both energy-relevant as well as economic performance, the identification and further development of promising technologies, an optimised integration of solar assisted cooling systems into the building and the HVAC-system focusing on an optimised primary energy saving - cost performance and the creation of design tools and design concepts for architects, planners and civil engineers. A collaborative effort between twelve countries.

Scientist Responsible: Dr. C. Balaras

Managing Natural Pollutants Indoor (MaNaPi).
(EC, D.G. SANCO, Employment, Industrial Relations and Social Affairs, Section: Public Health and Safety at Work, EC 2000/POL/107)

Start: 1-3-2000
End: 30-11-2001

Total Budget: Voluntary participation

MaNaPi is a project for the improvement of indoor air conditions in buildings. The participants have access to various European and national data, pollutant levels in order to assess the impact on humans under the exposure as a result of some interventions. A collaborative effort between forty-two national representatives from twenty-eight countries.

Scientist Responsible: Dr. C. Balaras

LIFETIME Engineering of Buildings & Civil Infrastructures.
(GROWTH, DG XII, G1RT-CT-2002-05082)

Start: 1-6-2002
End: 31-5-2005

Total Budget: 4,800 Euro

Contribute to European and worldwide development of a more sustainable built environment. The network focuses on application of lifetime principles both in buildings and civil infrastructures, as well as in mining and other industrial engineering. The overall aim is to help to promote national, European and even world wide development, dissemination, exploitation and training processes, which will continue after the Network on a long-term basis. A collaborative effort from eighty organisations. Project information is available in

Scientist Responsible: Dr. C. Balaras
