 With the collaboration of United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Turkish Society of HVAC and Sanitary Engineers (TTMD), the Third International Conference on Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning (ICHVAC-3)” was being held in Tehran, the capital of Iran, on 24-26 May 2011. TTMD President Gürkan Arı and Board Member Dr. Kemal Gani Bayraktar participated the conference on behalf of our organization. Gürkan Arı introduced TTMD and its activities and shared information about HVAC Sector in Turkey at his opening speech. Moreover, he summarized that how energy efficiency and new regulations affect the development of the sector by presenting data with examples. 

TTMD Committee made contacts with Iran within the scope of the conference, got together with Director of School of Mechanical Engineering Sharif University of Technology, Prof. Dr. Mohammad H. Saidi and got informed about 6 departments in the school while visiting research laboratories.
Different departments such as Biomechanics, Ocean Engineering, Manufacturing and Production, Energy Transformation, Applied Mechanics, Mechatronic were examined and potential collaborations were studied within the scope of the visit. The school has 40 different laboratories. Out of 1200 students, there are 112 Phd students and 400 MSc students in the school. The school has built strong connections with the industry and 14 out of 43 personnel work in department of Energy Transformation. Later in a meeting with Energy Engineering School Director  Prof. Dr. Moustafa Sohrabpour and his team, information about master’s and doctorate programs for System Engineer, Environmental Engineers, Energy Engineers and Nuclear Engineers was presented. The institutions got to know each other and potential collaborations were discussed.
