This issue of Building Research is devoted to indoor climate. A considerable amount of short-term and long-term research work is being carried out at various universities and institutes of technology throughout the countyr. Funding for some of this work is provided by the Swedish Council for Building Research. Extra interest will be generated in August, when research workers in the climatic field from throughout the world will be attending the Indoor Air Climate conference in Stockholm. Excessive or incorrectly applied energy conservation in buildings can give rise to irritation of the mucous membranes and other discomfort. A considerable amount of research is being carried out into these problems. One group of workers, with financial funding from the Swedish Council for Building Research, is engaged on research into the quality of indoor air, and is led by Birgitta Berglund, of the University of Stockholm, Ulf Berglund of the Royal Institute of Technology and Thomas Lindvall, of the Karolinska Institute. This article describes their work.
