The Society of Heating, Air-Conditioning and Sanitary Engineers of Japan (SHASE) has appointed Masayuki Otsuka as its newest President.
As an organisation, SHASE represents the heating, air conditioning and sanitary engineering sectors in Japan and has over 15,000 members.
SHASE has more than 90 committees whose major activities include research and investigation. They aim to equip SHASE members with knowledge and information in their specialised fields.
The Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating (AIRAH) signed a Memorandum of Understanding with SHASE in 1978, and the two organisations have enjoyed an academic relationship for more than 40 years.
Otsuka says it is important for academic societies to continue working together, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
“This pandemic has called both our societies to once again re-examine the air conditioning and sanitary facilities in buildings to help maintain the health and safety of people and their lives all over the world. It is also becoming more and more important for our academic societies to contribute to the realisation of a sustainable society,” says Otsuka.
“This pandemic has called both our societies to once again re-examine the air conditioning and sanitary facilities in buildings to help maintain the health and safety of people and their lives all over the world.”
“We hope that the academic exchange between SHASE and AIRAH that was established more than 40 years ago will continue to develop over the years to come.”
