The HI-LED consortium is composed of a multidisciplinary team able to tackle all the different phases of the project. The consortium comprises both academic research and industrial partners, coming from 6 European countries (Spain, UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Hungary), and has a well balanced distribution of effort and resources.
Three groups constitute the HI-LED project: 1) Research centres specialized in the photonic technology and research in the light engines themselves (IREC and FHG). 2) Lighting manufacturers and industrialisation partners who will design and supply components and packaging of the technology within their respective fields and perform the cost analyses and feasibility studies (ARCH, LPI and DOOL). 3) Academic research groups focusing on the application side with strong links to industry (WUR, UNEW, UPAN and IRTA).
On the industrial side, the partner mix is very representative of all the businesses types interacting in the field of lighting. ARCH, having internal manufacturing lines, is naturally sensitive to manufacturability, yield and cost whilst LPI and DOOL bring the complementary perspective of a optical design and with a substantial technology IP portfolio. DOOL operates in the fields of grow lighting for the horticultural sector, lighting for livestock breeding, top quality assembly and development, energy management and electrical engineering.

Institute for Food and Agricultural Research and Technology
IRTA is a Research Institute depending on the Catalan Government. IRTA´s general objectives are: to promote research and technological development in the agro-food sector; to assess scientific advances and to facilitate their implementation. The team involved in this project is part of IRTA’s Environmental Horticulture programme. The team is currently working on the areas of greenhouse design for warm climates and on the quantitative analysis of the environmental impact of protected cultivation. By combining a sound engineering design with their associated environmental study an important reduction of inputs and environmental burden is sought in the short term.
Research Implementation is a key feature at IRTA. For this reason over the years IRTA has performed contracted research and has given specialised technical service to a long list of clients, most of them SMEs. In this project IRTA expects to collaborate with the participating SME’s providing them with applied information to improve the environmental profile of CO2 enrichment. Moreover IRTA seeks helping SMEs to develop strategies for minimum ventilation and optimum CO2 application which are very relevant issues to make Mediterranean horticulture more environmentally and economically sustainable.
