A window to zero energy
consumption is so close.

 

The program's Academic Coordinator is the Professor of the Physics Department of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Mattheos Santamouris. From UIA-ARES side, the coordinator is the architect and member of UIA Council, Nikos Fintikakis Director of UIA-ARES Int. WP.
The program is the outcome of the collaboration of the University of Athens with the International Union of Architects - ARES Int. WP and is grounded on distance learning with its base being the educational system of E- Learning Programme of the Center of Continuing Education and Lifelong Learning of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (UOA).
This action is regarded as an innovative and unprecedented application because for the first time, important researchers and academics from universities around the world will teach in parallel with each other contributing to a crucial scientific project. For the first time, practice meets theory in a flexible program.

 

 

The proposed CPD Professional Development and Training program will be conducted in cooperation with the International Union of Architects UIA CPD program and the UIA Work Programme ARES [Architecture & Renewable Energy Sources]. The aim of the whole module is the Vocational Training and Education mainly for architects and other related specializations such as Civil Engineers and/or other engineering scientists dealing with issues of planning, evaluation and optimization for buildings of zero energy by the positive energy balance. It is well known that by the end of this decade all new buildings in Europe and in other parts of the developed world should have almost zero energy consumption. Since the achievement of such planning is associated with highly significant technical and economic issues which must be addressed during the design and construction of buildings, there is an increased need for automatically rapid and efficient training of all involved engineers and scientists in the related fields.

The CPD Professional Development Program, Training and Education will focus on the following: Technologies of shell building, technology of auxiliary heating and air conditioning, advanced technologies of technical and natural lighting, technologies to improve indoor air quality, technical and natural ventilation systems, techniques and technologies to improve the building microclimate, renewable energy systems for buildings and settlements, advanced automatic control systems for buildings, economic optimization methods, calculation programs and energy consumption and environmental quality of buildings, legislation and best management practices, presentation of relevant practices and existing buildings. The training module will be taught famous architects, scientists and engineers from around the world with advanced experience in the relevant issues and will be indicated both by the UIA-ARES, and from EKPA. All of the training module will be in the English language.
