VELUX has a long tradition of cooperation with universities and research centres. We collaborate with academics and researchers to increase the understanding of how windows and other building components contribute to the overall performance of buildings, especially as regards energy usage and health implications for residents.
We welcome new research in the above fields, and are interested in collaboration, particularly in relation to:
- The effects of daylight, thermal comfort and indoor air quality on health and wellbeing
- The effects of daylight/darkness, temperatures and indoor air quality on sleep quality
- The costs to society of unhealthy building – and in particular the role of daylight and indoor climate
