University of Venice, as one of the leading Italian universities, has been traditionally very active in European research with many H2020 projects. Now, it is working on new lines of research on sustainable buildings. With its newly formed User & Built Environment (UBE) Group, UNIVE is developing research on indoor environmental quality, building energy consumption, and co benefits of energy efficiency.
In line with UBE’s research interests, UNIVE is WP5 leader of the H2020 Cultural-E project, developing research on the user’s expectations concerning indoor climate, user-systems interaction, and co-benefits of energy efficiency.
Wilmer Pasut is Associate Professor of building physics at the University of Venice in the Department of Environmental Science, Informatics and Statistics. He is interested in indoor environmental conditions and user’s perception.
In particular, he develops research on understanding how users perceived the indoor environment in order to develop better technologies and control strategies for healthier and more energy efficient buildings.
Lorenza Pistore is a Post-doctoral Researcher at University of Venice.
After the degree in Architecture, her doctoral studies and her current research interest have mainly focused on building physics, including users’ wellbeing and behaviour in the indoor environment, energy efficiency measures and retrofit interventions for the existing building stock.
