Breath IN Project – towards a better and sustainable indoor air quality environment – is a consortium of four Higher Education Institutions from four European Countries.

More than 90% of one’s lifespan is spent in closed environments therefore indoor air pollution may pose a serious threat to health. The Higher Education Institutions (HEI) sector represents a unique environment, for faculty members, and a learning environment for students. BREATH IN aims at promoting awareness, exchanging best practices, developing skills, creating a Living lab to experience the impact of indoor air quality, introducing eco-friendly and green practices, and proposing a roadmap for a sustainable environment.
