Second HI-LED workshop 2016

2nd workshop HI-LED “ Spectrally – Tunable LED and OLED lighting”

Workshop Focus

The second HI-LED workshop event would be held on Festspielhaus Bregenz, Austria, September 21st, 2016. This is a scientific meeting focused on advances in spectrally and tunable solid state lighting for art work, horticulture and human centric lighting supported by the FP7 Framework programme and hosted by Catalonia Institute for Energy Research Institute (IREC) and co-llocated during the LED professional symposium + Expo LPS 2016 event.


This workshop organized by the EU FP7 HI-LED project aims to attract the participation of lighting professionals, photonics researchers, lighting manufacturers, end users from European museums, horticulture growers, health care centers, ICT research organizations as well as analysts and investors interested in smart lighting sector.
HI-LED-2016 workshop will provide an international forum to foster solid state lighting SSL related entrepreneurship and innovation, share experiences, increase awareness of innovative LED and OLED lighting and research results.
Thematic priorities in this workshop include the next topics: Museum lighting, Tunable lighting systems for biological rhythms adaptation and hormone balance, Solid State Lighting (SSL) for mood and cognitive performance and SSL for non visual pathways stimulation, horticulture lighting, Tuneable OLED lighting.

Event Profile
The workshop has an international perspective, and encourages the attendance of speakers around the world. The event ensures a stimulating, high quality networking environment, providing an opportunity to share knowledge and experience with potential innovation and research partners.
