Sep 21, 2017: Luger Research establishes the first scientific lighting partnership network for research experts and leaders in the lighting industry. The scientific partnership has been created to form an active network that will strengthen and build the connections between universities, research laboratories and industry. The scientific partnership’s mission is to enable and secure the continued development of innovation in lighting technology.
Strategic alliances are important, and in the world of research they are crucial for the continued development of future innovations. Likewise, industry requires the latest insights and findings from the research organizations to make sure their products and solutions are the very best they can be. By building these scientific partnerships, Luger Research will drive lighting innovation towards a more sustainable and better future. Joining Luger Research in this venture are some of Europe’s leading universities and research laboratories. These scientific partners will also make up the jury and expert panel assessing this year’s prestigious LpS Scientific Award.
The first meeting of the scientific partners and industry leaders will take place at the LpS 2017, in a specialist workshop on September 28. This workshop has been tailored to encourage and build new connections between scientific partners and potential applicators of their know-how. To make sure the connections that are formed are best suited to every participant in the workshop, the scientific partners will be divided into four technology expertise fields. These are LED and OLED, driver, thermal management and reliability, optics and light quality, and smart lighting and IoT.
“We want to draw together mutually beneficial partnerships between lighting research and the lighting industry. Luger Research and all of our publications, media channels and events, will operate as a platform that will enable the clear and open sharing of information into the development of lighting technology. It will also act as the facilitator for, what we intend to be, long lasting and mutually beneficial partnerships between research and industry. We want to help bring to life these new innovations that can benefit advances in wellbeing and improve sustainability for us all and for the future.” Siegfried Luger, CEO at Luger Research
The scientific lighting partnership is currently centered on Europe but the long term ambitions are that it will evolve in the coming years to become the world’s leading lighting technology network.
