Centre for Healthy Indoor Environment

Project: Network

Project Details


The centre for healthy indoor environments (CHIE) is an international centre that aims to create a communication platform promoting healthy indoor environments. The focus lies on research initiatives for knowledge provision and solutions for societal challenges.

The overall goal is to understand how to create sound and sustainable indoor environments to promote human health, well-being, productivity, creativity, to address new environmental stressors (due to a changing climate) and societal needs (aging population, increased sensitisation and prevalence of disease) while at the same time strive for the sustainable use of resources.

We aim to bridge different research areas in order to understand the complex interactions taking place in indoor environments and determine which research methods and assessment tools can be used.

The center was initiated in 2014 as a project theme "Healthy Indoor Environments" at the Pufendorf Institute for Advanced Studies during the academic year of 2014 – 2015. The Pufendorf IAS is a transdisciplinary research institute at Lund University, welcoming scholars and scientists from all the faculties to come and work together since 2008.
