The REHVA Student Competition, held annually, took place in Brussels during REHVA's Annual Meeting on Thursday, May 11. This event brought together 11 students from various parts of Europe who gathered in Brussels to showcase their research projects before a distinguished panel of jury members.
One outstanding participant, Bas Turk from the Netherlands, presented his work titled "Quantifying the potential of overheating countermeasures on a humanitarian shelter through measurements and building performance simulation."
Lewis Turner secured second place for his paper on "Efficacy of Air Purification to Control Infection in NHS Hospitals," while Miguel Rodríguez Fernández came third with his study on an "Indirect Evaporative Heat Exchanger Prototype Manufactured with 3D Printing." Aurore Toulou won the "best poster" category.
As the winner of the REHVA Student Competition, Bas Turk will now proudly represent Europe at the HVAC World Student competition, an achievement that reflects his dedication and expertise. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Bas Turk for his remarkable accomplishment, as well as to all the other students who enthusiastically participated in the competition.
During the REHVA Gala dinner (12 May), all the participating students were provided with a unique opportunity to engage with esteemed members and supporters of REHVA, fostering valuable networking connections within the industry. This gathering allowed them to interact and exchange ideas with professionals who are at the forefront of the HVAC field.
Furthermore, the students were privileged to visit the renowned Atomium, an iconic architectural landmark in Brussels. This excursion offered them a chance to appreciate the rich history and innovative design that the Atomium represents.
We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to our esteemed sponsor, Eurovent Certita Certification, whose generous support made this event possible, once again. Their commitment to fostering talent and promoting excellence in the industry is invaluable.
