Event Description

Syracuse Center of Excellence (COE) Forum: The Impact of Green Buildings on Cognitive Function - Feb 22, 4pm

When: Wednesday, February 22, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM EST

Where: Syracuse Center of Excellence, 727 East Washington Street, Syracuse, NY 13244

Join SyracuseCoE for a special Research & Technology Forum featuring researchers from Harvard University and SUNY Upstate Medical University to discuss Study 2 of the groundbreaking COGfx research, "Buildingomics." This exciting research builds on separate research released last year, based on work done at SyracuseCoE's Total Indoor Environmental Quality (TIEQ) Lab, that found a 101% improvement in cognitive test scores for people that worked in optimized indoor environmental quality conditions often found in green buildings.

Now, the research scientists go a step further with "Buildingomics"- a new approach that examines the totality of factors in the building-related environment that influence the human health, well-being and productivity of people who work in buildings. Learn more about how the COGfx Study 2 found improved cognitive test scores for people that worked in certified green buildings through new research covering more than 100 workers in 10 office buildings across the U.S.

Introduction by John Mandyck, Chief Sustainability Officer, United Technologies Corporation
Presentations by Dr. Joseph Allen, Dr. Piers MacNaughton and Dr. Usha Satish
