Details

Join us for a Science to Achieve Results (STAR) progress review meeting and webinar for grantees awarded under the 2014 Request for Applications (RFA) Indoor Air and Climate Change. Registration is free and open to the public.

One of the high-priority research areas identified by EPA's Office of Research and Development (ORD) involves the interaction between issues of air quality, climate and energy, which can impact human health and the environment. To advance its statutory mission, and recognizing the continuity between indoor and outdoor air quality, EPA funded research at nine institutions through STAR grants. The goal is to advance and develop the understanding of the effects of climate change on indoor air quality and the resulting health outcomes associated with exposure. This research explores the anticipated effects of climate change on indoor air quality directly through a variety of mechanisms, and indirectly through adaptations in building use and design.

This progress review meeting brings together grantees, researchers and policy makers from EPA and other federal agencies to discuss current findings and implications. EPA aims to facilitate discussions that will promote further collaborations between federal agencies and research institutions.

For those unable to attend the meeting in person, presentations will be live-streamed via Adobe Connect. Additional details, including the webinar URL, will be emailed to attendees following registration.

Featured Speakers

Wednesday, Dec. 7: Changes in the Climate and Health Outcomes

These presentations will discuss new research on indoor air quality, changes in the climate and the outcomes associated with exposure to pollutants.

Thursday, Dec. 8: Assessing the Impact

These presentations will discuss new research on indoor air quality and the health risks, outcomes and impacts that can occur after prolonged exposure to the environment.
