Partnering opportunity

A French company which has developed a simulation software for indoor air quality, is looking for industrial and academic partners in order to bring its expertise within a consortium to respond to European calls (e.g. Horizon2020 call “SC1-BHC-29-2020")

Summary

A French start-up publishes a simulation software for indoor air quality for designing healthy buildings. With this Building Information Model (BIM) compatible tool, designers make the right construction choices to ensure good air quality for the future building. The company is looking for a consortium of industrial and academic partners to respond to the Horizon2020 call “SC1-BHC-29-2020 : innovative actions for improving urban health and wellbeing”, under research cooperation agreement

Partner sought

The french company is looking for industrial and academic partners interested in indoor air quality in order to bring its expertise within a consortium to answer to European calls (notably “SC1-BHC-29-2020 : innovative actions for improving urban health and wellbeing”). For example, the partners could be specialised in the construction industry, in the building solutions, in the health related solutions.

Description

90% of our time is spent indoors. Indoor air is 5 to 8 times more polluted than outdoor air (French Indoor Air Quality Observatory). Designing healthy buildings is thus a priority. However, building designers lake of means to assess the future sanitary quality of their construction. The French company’s challenge is to preserve the health of people by ensuring good air quality in their future building. The company offer is a simulation software for indoor air quality (IAQ) commercialized as a SaaS solution. It helps building designers to make their construction choices such as materials and ventilation systems to ensure good air quality for any kind of buildings (offices, housing, educational buildings…). Depending on materials used, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC), room occupancy, outdoor air pollution and furniture, this BIM compatible tool minimizes uncertainties, secures certifications such as BREEAM or WELL, and helps to find the ideal compromise between IAQ and energy performance. This innovative software uses a unique validated numerical model of indoor air chemistry. It simulates the concentration of pollutants such as 700 volatile organic compounds (VOC), particulate matter, ozone and nitrogen oxides, by taking into account emission sources, air flow, photochemistry phenomena and surface/pollutant interactions. Moreover the software integrates material emission and outdoor air quality databases. The company is looking for industrial and academic partners interested in indoor air quality in order to bring its expertise within a consortium to answer to European calls (notably “SC1-BHC-29-2020 : innovative actions for improving urban health and wellbeing”).

Advantages and innovations

The solution helps to make the right decisions to improve indoor air quality for people. This simulation software for indoor air quality helps building designers (architects, engineers, builders) to make the right construction choices in terms of HVAC systems and materials, depending on materials used (floor and wall covering, adhesives, wall paint, …), ventilations systems, room occupancy, outdoor air pollution and furniture. To do so, the user can easily analyse the simulation results allowing to : Assess the concentration of pollutants in each room using a color scale, Track the concentration of each pollutant by location over a one week period, Identify the most emissive materials. The solution is easy to use Available as a plug in for BIM tools, the software is easy to learn and use. As a cloud solution, all calculations are made on the company’s servers and consequently it lets the user’s computer free to use.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
