HI-LED workshop 2015

HI-LED Workshop 2015 “Digital lighting and human health”

This scientific event is organized by the Lighting Group of IREC (Catalonia Institute for Energy Research) in the framework of the FP7 Programme Project “HI-LED: Human-centric Intelligent LED engines for the take up of SSL in Europe”. HI-LED aims at implementing SSL-based spectrally tunable light sources, whose spectral content can be dynamically adapted, by means of close-loop monitoring and complex algorithms, to different application fields; between them, human-centric lighting.

Lighting conditions affect to cognitive abilities and behaviours. Full control of spectral features of lighting enables the possibility of discriminating and individually exploiting such effects. SSL light-engines with added intelligence offer the possibility of tailoring spectral distributions respectful with our circadian rhythms or capable of inducing desired effects on behaviour, mood and/or physiology. The objective of HI-LED Workshop is attracts the participation from senior representatives of leading public, industrial companies, education and research organisations around the world interested in human-centric lighting to discuss about advances in the field, foster LED based technology and identify opportunities for research and collaboration under Horizon 2020 framework.
