One of the research axes of the Laboratoire des Sciences de l’Ingénieur pour l’Environnement (LaSIE) of La Rochelle Université (ULR) concerns quality of indoor/outdoor environments, which includes the study of adsorbent materials, energy efficiency of air conditioning systems and co-optimization of building and systems design.

Therefore, its scientific contribution to the ARCAS project is a key element for the energy efficiency of buildings and the quality control of inhabited environments.
