The article covers the wide array of recommendations and needs that were found at the C.L.E.A.N. summit 2020.
In this summit, there were coordinated efforts to assess the challenges and pain points felt by industries from around the globe working to reduce COVID-19 transmission in the indoor environment as well as innovative solutions applied to meet these challenges.
The C.L.E.A.N. summit was a three-stage science and innovation Summit with the aim to gather information on current standards, policies, and procedures applied to reduce transmission in built spaces, as well as the technical challenges, science needs, and research priorities.
The Summit was impactful because it brought disparate groups that do not commonly work together to meet the changing needs of the community and incorporate lessons learned into best practices that are holistic.
The research community has come together in unprecedented ways to respond to the pandemic. Such focused efforts can be used to guide basic research funding priorities and coordinate funding for identified capability gaps as well as serve as the foundation for future policy development.
The research community will continue to benefit from coordinating what is known about buildings and viruses including the unique findings from studying SARS-CoV-2, and rapidly sharing the gaps in our collective knowledge using tools like virtual workshops.
