Early career research network

The “UKCMB Affiliate Network” was created to foster a research community of UK and international PhD students and researchers focusing on moisture in buildings. This platform supports regular meetings, workshops, and seminars to share insights and collaborate on solutions to moisture-related challenges. IEDE PhD students involved in this network are working on projects such as assessing ventilation rates in dwellings, proposing retrofit criteria based on thermal comfort, investigating the performance of solid walls with water-repellent surface treatments, developing a geo-located database of material properties for historic solid brick buildings in London, and benchmarking indoor mould levels for the UK building stock. Our goal is to expand participant numbers and establish broader partnerships, nurturing future experts and advancing the development of resilient, moisture-resistant buildings.
